The new catch phrase in education for the last few years is Multi- Intelligences
According to Howard Gardner there are 8 ways that we learn.

1. Logical-Mathematical: You like to work with numbers, you think logically and operate with reason.
2. Linguistic-Verbal: You use words effectively, orally or in writing. You also enjoy listening.
3. Musical: You enjoy experiencing and/or performing  any form of music.
4. Spatial: You perceive the visual-spatial world accurately, you enjoy visual art forms and can graphically represent ideas.
5. Bodily-Kinesthetic: You use your whole body to express ideas and feelings and use your hands to produce or transform things.
6. Naturalistic: You appreciate, nurture, and care for plants, animals, and the environment.

7. Interpersonal/relational: You are a people person and have an awareness of others' feelings.
8. Intrapersonal/introspective: You have a good sense of self and are focused within.

Phyllis, I haven't seen them, only read reviews. There is a video "Multiple Intelligences" 'Part of Every Lesson' done by
Spencer & Laurie Kagan. The reviews say it is designed for teachers in all grades.

After searching the Internet, I found these sources that you might want to review.

"How Kids Are Smart?"

Dr. Armstrong has a few videos if you scroll to the bottom of that page.

I hope you'll let us know if you find some that will work.

I'm looking for a test that identifies your own particular intelligence preference. I took it at a workshop that Mickie ran, so its possible its copyrighted, but I don't think so.

... wonderful website (where) adults or children can take a mult. int. test. You might need to sit beside younger children and explain a few of these.
