Multiple Intelligences for Adult Literacy and
Education was originally developed in 199192 as a print-based
kit called "Honoring Diversity: a Multidimensional Learning
Model for Adults." It was created by Leslie Shelton, Joan
Sheldon Conan, and Holly Fulghum-Nutters, and it was funded by
the California State Library Foundation.
This site was adapted by Leslie Shelton, Paul
Heavenridge, and Cheshire Dave Beckerman to take advantage of
the multimedia capabilities of the Web, which has the potential
to address each of the intelligences.
site is presented by Literacyworks, a nonprofit organization dedicated
to providing high-quality multimedia curriculum for adult learners.
Literacyworks is the Western/Pacific LINCS Regional Technology
Center of the National Institute for Literacy. Literacyworks partners
with national, state, and local library and education programs.
