We Teach the Way Students Learn
Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom
Teachers leverage students’ strengths and show them different paths to academic success.
At CH-CH, we know that every learner enters the classroom with a unique set of intellectual, personal, and academic strengths. Our teachers strive to connect the material and skills being taught to those strengths and in doing so extend and further develop our students’ overall capacities and performance.
We create multiple paths to mastery of both skills and content, ensuring that all students have the opportunity to engage with the material in meaningful ways. In our student-centered classrooms, with an average class size of ten students, teachers leverage students’ strengths, show them different paths to academic success, allow them to develop as learners, 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:
Located 10 miles from Boston, Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall is a college preparatory school that teaches the way students learn. The School welcomes students with diverse learning styles and helps them to develop self-confidence and achieve academic success through personalized, integrated learning. Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall offers 180 boarding and day students a richly diverse cultural and academic environment and opportunities to engage in the arts, athletics and community service.
