first timers joy.

I gave my very first workshop today on Multiple Intelligence Theory into Practice for my peers. It was a daunting and exciting challenge. I’m tremendously passionate about implementing MI theory into my teaching practice. I tried to draw a lot of good information and provide some new nuggets of information for my peers.

We had some really great discussions about the role that these intelligences play in our teaching. By identifying our own intelligence strengths we can learn how we play to our own strengths rather than that of our students. We also discussed the merits and detriments of inventorying our own students. I gained a lot of energy from listening to my peers and their positive attitude towards our discussion.

Now that I have given this workshop, it is clear that I can streamline some of the activities, strengthen others, and certainly request more time for a practical application of the strategies. I am still reeling with first timers joy and hope to do this again.

    You did a fantastic job on that workshop, whether you’ll take credit or not! If you got lagger #1 talking about MI in her classroom, then it’s a total homerun, lady.
