The most common response will be "being smart". From there, ask students if they can think of different types of intelligence. Common answers might include being smart in school, being street smart, being smart in business etc.…Solicit group responses. To further reinforce the idea that there are different areas of intelligence, explain how when thinking about intelligence, most people think of very smart people like Albert Einstein. However, what about athletes with extraordinary physi- cal abilities? Or musicians with exceptional musical talent? Next, inform students that they will be taking a survey to determine their dominate types of intelli- gence. Hand out the "Multiple Intelligences Survey" and allow students 15 minutes to complete it. Once students are done the survey, have them graph their results and answer the reflection questions. Go through each of the different types of intelligence with students, explaining what each one is and asking students to raise their hands if it was in their top three. Lesson Plan
