The multiple intelligences theory is a modernized teaching practice that considers the developmental characteristics of students while acknowledging their individualism. It is a theory that has been used throughout the world and throughout all grade levels. This senior capstone research project examines the benefits of incorporating Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory into teaching practices using class observation, literature review, and interviews with teachers. The results indicated that when incorporating the multiple intelligences theory into teaching practices, educators are more engaged with their students and create an environment for students to maximize their learning and understanding information to their fullest extent.
