This book will help teachers design effective curriculum for their students with diverse learning abilities. The authors have created a guided process to apply MI theory to the elementary school classroom. The five, pathways, or approaches examined: Exploration, Bridging, Understanding, Authentic Problems, and Talent Development, represent the ways in which MI can be implemented and nurtured across the elementary grades. The Pathways Model promotes and supports the development of a well-grounded understanding of MI theory to inform goal-setting and planning for using multiple intelligences theory in the classroom. Each pathway addresses a different set of goals and provides appropriate guidelines and examples.To do this the teachers invited a businesswoman from the community to discuss with the 4th graders how she had started her own company, ... The students applied for particular roles by completing an application, providing a letter of reference, and interviewing for the position. ... For example, the students learned how to write a business plan and create a brochure during the language arts block.
