How Strengths and Weaknesses Fit my Perception
While completing the simulation, I had to think about whether some of the statements really applied to me. For example, I did not believe that playing t-ball as a child pertained to who I am now, so I did not choose that as a statement that described who I am today. After being given my strengths, I have decided that I agree with what the simulation has chosen for me. I exercise most of my strengths regularly. For example, I can easily understand when someone is upset or frustrated. I will also try to approach a situation after I have assessed any and all possible outcomes. However, I also know that I should be working on my weaknesses. I can exercise my bodily-kinesthetic intelligence while using my musical intelligence through the act of dancing. Although this was a short test, I think that it will help me to better understand the way my brain works and how I can improve my intelligence in different areas.
Multiple Intelligences in the classroom
Understanding the different intelligences of my students can help me:
- Create better lesson plans
- Select activities that will help students exercise their strengths and weaknesses
- Tailor individual help to a student's strengths
- Understand what intelligences my students may need help fostering
