Howard Gardnerâ€™s theory of multiple intelligences has revolutionized the way we think about being smart. Teachers are using multiple intelligences curricula in their classrooms. Multiple intelligences schools have opened in several states. But itâ€™s not enough for adults to know about multiple intelligences. In true Free Spirit style, this new book helps kids understand Gardnerâ€™s theory, what it means to them, and how to make the most of their own abilities and potential. In clear, simple language, Thomas Armstrong introduces the theory, explains the eight intelligences, and describes ways to develop each one. He tells young readers how to use all eight intelligences in school, build them at home, and draw on them to plan for the future. Resources describe related books, software, games, and organizations. As kids read the book, try Tomâ€™s ideas, and check out the resources, they stop asking â€śHow smart am I?â€ť and start asking â€śHow am I smart?â€ť This powerful learning tool is recommended for all kidsâ€”and all adults committed to helping young people do and be their best.
