My philosophy of education would be to implement Multiple Intelligences in the classroom for several reasons. The first reason is that it enhances cooperative learning. The second reason is that a teacher can create an effective learning environment by having students participate in hand-on activities. Third reason is that the visual learners can enjoy watching different cultural films and slides to have an awareness of the various customs. Fourth it teaches students one of the most important elements in life about social skills.

(Howard Garner PG 2 0f 11). On the other hand Gardner’s “ research has defined 8 or 9 human intelligences. We all possess these several intelligences but no two of us-not even identical twins possess the same profile of intelligences at the same moment.” (Howard Gardner PG 2 of 11.) In addition, to confirm the different learners the famous Socrates wrote, “ individuals come to us not only with their own unique set of problems but also with a unique set of talents and predilections for different modes of communication and expressions. For this reason, it is helpful for us therapists, to become comfortable with alternate mediums of expression. Some individuals may be tactile or physically oriented, whereas others may be intellectual or auditory. How individuals experience and organize their...
