Friendly, not stuffy!! Well organized, not confusing! Easy, not hard! Should I go on?

This book is the book to FINALLY tell me HOW to teach with multiple intelligences in mind in my classroom. We have all known for years that we learn in different ways. FINALLY, someone wrote a book to show me HOW to teach in different ways.

The Guided Imagery selection on the Underground Railroad had me and the students in tears. It is pretty hard to get some of my kids to be serious but when we did this guided imagery, I think they really felt what it must have been like to be a slave faced with the decision to leave everything they knew for freedom. POWERFUL is the word! I can't wait to do the one on the Hearty Voyage!

The Fan-N-Pick cards are great for teambuilding! I have even used them as points of discussion in my own family as we sit around the dinner table each night! One card is all it takes to get my family to having REAL conversations. Last night we discussed the bravest thing we had ever done in our lives. My 6 year old told a charming story about the monster in her closet and how she decided to "face" that monster!

Thanks again for a great book, Laurie Kagan!


Kagan successfully shows how Multiple Intelligences can be taught through cooperative structures. This book showed me how to include MI activities without drastically changing how I already teach.
