Parents will often describe their children as inquisitive or nosey, chatty or talkative, fidgety or squirmy. Parents may refer to a child's short attention span, constant doodling, or inability to sit still and focus. While some of these are traditionally seen as behaviors detrimental to a learning environment, through Multiple Intelligences we can identify a students personal strengths and weaknesses and "tweak" a lesson or curriculum plan to fit their needs.
The theory of Multiple Intelligences was developed by Howard Gardner, and if refers to eight basic ways that people process information (not to be confused with "learning styles"): Bodily-Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Logical-Mathematical, Musical, Naturalistic, Verbal-Linguistic, and Visual-Spatial.
