Howard Gardner first proposed his theory of Multiple Intelligence theory in 1983. Over the past two decades this theory has made its way into classrooms and has gained positive attention. However, with the restrictions of set curriculums and standardized testing, Multiple Intelligence theory has faced obstacles implementing fully into the classroom. To effectively apply this theory into the classroom there needs to be openness to differences within the classroom and how students learn. The goal of this project was to present a project that will be a useful tool for beginning and experienced teachers. The strategies presented in this project are meant to help foster a positive learning environment for every classroom. Limitations and recommendations were also presented for future research.
