This course introduces teaching practices for 8 forms of multiple intelligences. These include; verbal, mathematical, visual, kinesthetic, rhythmic, interpersonal, intrapersonal and naturalist. It provides insight into the diversity of learning and includes many clearly-designed examples of multiply-intelligent ways to design learning experiences. While the textbook was written for teaching children K-12, the concepts and strategies are clearly applicable to all forms of communication.
This course details:
For those massage therapists interested in offering massage classes, teaching at a massage school or public speaking - these techniques will help you understand how people learn in different ways. Also helpful for gaining strategies to instruct a client when in exercise or stretch 'homework'.
This course was not only helpful for the process of teaching massage but for helping my children throughout their school experience

I enjoyed this course immensely the questions were thought provoking. I began Planning and re-planning lessons right away and put the ideas to work immediately with my 2 year old and the under 5 yr. olds that attend my day care.

This was interesting because I never knew how to combine various exercises to enhance deep learning. I will use what I learned in my massage and wellness classes.

I had less than a month to read the book and complete the course to renew my license. Before I took this course, I have thought how utilizing different intelligences into teaching a subject would encapsulate all the different learning abilities of students. This course only reaffirmed that thought. I will definitely break the methods down and integrate them in teaching, as it will open up a whole new world for me and my students.

As a massage teacher, I found the topic most enlightening and have been using it for 2 quarters at my institution. My students have really blossomed since I've been using this strategy.

The book, "Eight Ways of Teaching" and the test were the course materials. The author, David Lazear, masterfully translates multiple intelligence research/teaching/planning into understanding and eagerness to dive in. I wish there had been a workbook, but after completing the course, I see the book is the workbook. Thank you for this.

A similar course was offered 18 years ago to the teaching staff at the massage school where I taught for 10 years. The information was as interesting, applicable, and valuable to me then as it is now. Not only can this information be used in classroom setting, it is also helpful in determining the learning intelligence of clients to best educate them with regard to self-care. Wonderful course!

I found the book fascinating.

Nicely designed course! Applies to any kind of teaching, not just teaching massage.
