Multiple Intelligences

MI: The theory of Multiple Intelligences derives from the fact that intelligence is problem-solving and there are many different ways to solve problems. Unfortunately, too often schools only offer narrow pathways for students to learn. Dr. Hoerr's school, the New City School in St. Louis, began using MI in 1988, and has played a leadership role in showing others how to use MI. In this session, Dr. Hoerr will share strategies that teachers and principals can use in bringing MI into their schools.


  • Participants will understand the ways that intelligence has been designed and what this implies
  • Participants will learn the eight multiple intelligences and the distributed intelligence
  • Participants will develop strategies for implementing MI and DI in schools and classrooms
  • Participants will understand the non-instructional aspects that are necessary for an MI implementation
