questions teachers have asked about teaching spelling. Here are the...
Nature of the problem
There is a tremendous amount of pressure placed upon students and teachers to
achieve proficient scores on end of level math testing. High expectations dealing with
math have created many different...

ENGAGING SECONDARY STUDENTS IN MATHEMATICS WITH PROJECTS
CREATED BY IMPLEMENTING HOWARD GARDNER’S MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES
In the last couple of decades emphasis has been placed on Howard Gardner’s multiple
philosophy that educators can recognize signs that indicate a potential for inappropriate behavior
(Murdick, 1996). It is preferable to prevent inappropriate behaviors rather than wait until after
the behaviors occur before responding. Students...
Learning in detail about the different learning styles created by Howard Gardner
increased my desire to implement the strategies that have been proven to help students learn to
the best of their abilities. Even though at times I feel frustrated...
In a research study conducted by O’Connor et al. (2000), a group of kindergarteners’

classrooms are mathematical/logical learners (Nolen, 2003).
Wise (2009) commented on why high school has been left out of the literacy debate: the policymakers under No Child Left Behind only focused on the elementary levels because the severity of struggling readers in the upper levels was not...
