Our book author Loui Lord Nelson pointed out something during our 4:00pm book study this past week that I had to go back later and read. It was a short brief article from the Washington Post and can be found here. http://wapo.st/1zfhsoi I read this and learned a lot. The information hit me in the face like a rock. I felt guilt and now I have to re-program myself.
The article title is Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’. As educators we should all take the time to read this. Howard says - " My goal here is not to give a psychology or a physiology or a physics lesson but rather to make sure that we do not fool ourselves and, as important, that we do not short change our children. If people want to talk about ‘an impulsive style’ or ‘a visual learner,’ that’s their prerogative. But they should recognize that these labels may be unhelpful, at best, and ill-conceived at worst."
