Lesson Objectives

At the end of this lesson, students will be able to read biographies closely to determine which multiple intelligence(s) are emphasized. The instructor will model how to summarize the intelligences from an article and apply the theory to a biography, students will work with a partner to read a text and add on to their summaries of the intelligences, apply the theory to biographies, and connect the intelligences to various careers. Students will apply the theory to a number of biographical anecdotes, take a self-assessment quiz, and reflect on their own intelligences and related careers.

Student Target

I can read biographies closely to determine which multiple intelligence(s) are emphasized and analyze my own multiple intelligences to choose a career that is in my area of giftedness.
