Dr. Howard Gardner is the person who came up with the theory of multiple intelligence. Multiple intelligence means says there are different ways each learns. Dr. Gardner came up with 8 ways in which we learn. Each of these ways need to be explored in every classroom. Although, many educators use it as a secondary process behind teaching strategies. I believe this to be a mistake. Learning always starts with the learner. Therefore, in children's ministries across the nation we need to be using multiple intelligence in order to empower children to learn.
The 8 forms of intelligence are logical/mathematical, linguistic, musical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and natural. In order to use these learning styles effectively takes two forms of planning. The first is open-ended questions to ask children to inspire critical thinking. The second is a classroom environment designed to engage all forms of intelligence. Children’s Ministers and volunteers can use these strategies to enrich the children's experience and development in Christianity.
