Sometimes, people need to be reminded
that there are several different types of intelligence. A
person may not have the ability to learn foreign languages
but he or she may excel on the soccer field. Typically, the
areas in which people are talented are the same fields they
are interested in pursuing. Students can learn what their
multiple intelligences are and determine if their intelligences
and areas of interest match. They can then decide how they
will use these multiple intelligences to pursue their goals.
Have class break into groups with students who share
similar intelligences and brainstorm strategies they
could use to succeed in and outside of school to overcome
obstacles, relax and rejuvenate, and deal with challenges.
