We Teach the Way Students Learn
Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom
Teachers leverage students’ strengths and show them different paths to academic success.
CH-CH teachers create multiple paths to mastery of both skills and content, ensuring that all students have the opportunity to engage with curriculum in meaningful ways. In our student-centered classrooms, with an average class size of ten students, teachers leverage students’ strengths, show them various paths to academic success, and help them grow in their self-advocacy and self-confidence. It is an experience that is nothing short of transformative.
Our work with students is inspired by Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University, who developed the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Dr. Gardner proposes that there are nine intelligences that schools need to stimulate and support. At CH-CH, teachers design lessons that tap into the range of these intelligences:
