Multiplie Intelligences

As a part of my first week of school/getting to know you type of activities I have kids do a couple of assessments to help them learn about themselves.  One of these is a survey on Multiple Intelligences.  This is what I put on the next couple pages in their ISNs.

Multiple Intelligence page with both sides closed.

Left side flipped open.  Taped down inside the foldable.

Right side flipped over.  Nothing on the actual page.

Page 6 Multiple Intelligence Survey
This page is a survey that the kids take to identify which of the areas they have strengths in.  It is divided into 8 sections and kids check off statements that they identify with.  They then tally up each section and record the number.




Page 5 Multiple Intelligence Graph and Info
This foldable is just a sheet of paper folded in half.  On the outside kids use their survey scores to create a bar graph.  It's the same information from the survey but I think that it's a lot easier to interpret the scores graphically.



On the inside of this page is just some information and suggestions on what the multiple intelligences really mean.  I just have the kids highlight the areas they were strong in and read a little more about what that means.  I like the graph on this page, but I'll admit I'm trying to think of something more they can do with the information once they read it.



Another thing I'd like to add about the ISN here is that you should try to get into it too, not just have the kids doing everything.  I had done this all ahead of time so that the kids could see what the finished product should look like.  I found the especially important in the beginning as the kids were getting used to the ISN.  They were always a little hesitant and always wanted me to walk around with mine and show them what it should look like.


Download the pages:



There's also a couple bonus pages in here.  There is one page of activity suggestions for each of the intelligences and another page of careers that are geared towards each of the intelligences.  I really liked these pages a lot but just didn't end up using them last year.
*I don't take credit for creating ANY of these.  I would link to where I got them from but I have no idea where to even look*

  1. Yours is, hands-down, the very best blog for ISN. I have been researching blogs on this topic for months and nothing comes close to the comprehensive and thorough approach you provide to your readers. I am completely ready to dive in to ISN with my students this September, thanks to you. Great work!!

  8. I was very nervous to start middle school, and then adding ISN to the mix was a bit overwhelming...BUT after reading your posts about the logistics. Thank you for the details, pictures and enthusiasm. Could you send me the digital copies of the multiple intelligence. Survey along wig the learning styles. I can’t wait to start my ISN with my new students!

  9. You're not a genius. You transcend genius. This is by far the most valuable blog that I subscribe to. From a tactical, daily, value-add source, every time I come here, I find something that I can use right now, that is engaging to my kids and increases their time on learning. You are to practical pedagogy what Dan Meyer is to math. Without blaspheming, I don't think I can go any higher. No pressure, but I wait on tenterhooks for these emails. Thank you for each and every one.

  10. Hi Sarah! I'm new to middle school and plan on using ISN's in my language arts classes. Your blog has helped me immensely and I can't wait for the school year to start! I was able to download and print off your learning style survey but for some reason the MI one is coming out all in black boxes. If it's not to much of a hassle (what am I saying?! school starts in 2 weeks!) would you mind emailing me it jpklein5879@gmail.com If it's a problem, no worries, I'll look around for something similar :) Thanks!

  13. Box is telling me that you are out of bandwidth. Is there any way to fix that so that I can get these? They are wonderful!

  14. Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to get the pages for the multiple intelligences. They are great. It says you are out of bandwidth. Thanks

  15. Very sorry to anyone trying to download these. More people than usual have been downloading things lately so unfortunately I'm out of bandwidth until next month starts. Short of paying monthly there's unfortunately no way I can get more.

  16. I was able to right click the document and select print. I then changed the printer to PDF and it downloaded. Perfect PDF! Hope this helps!
