What multiple intelligence learning styles are used for a brochure activity?

A brochure activity is a great way to mix creativity and content. Brochures are usually filled with information about an area or contain directions about doing something. This allows a brochure activity to be done in Science, Social Studies and Language Arts depending on the curriculum.

Bringing in the multiple intelligence learning styles are a great way to interest students in an activity. The more multiple intelligence learning styles a teacher can bring into an activity the more students they have a chance of reaching. Brochure activities use four different multiple intelligence learning styles. The following are used in a brochure activity:

  • Linguistic Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Spatial Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Intrapersonal Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Interpersonal Multiple Intelligence Learning Style

Brochures, using informative language, use the linguistic multiple intelligence learning style. A brochure activity can give a little spunk to expository writing. It can help grab the attention of students.

Brochures wouldn’t be much to look at without pictures. This section will interest those students with the spatial multiple intelligence learning style. Teachers can allow students to either draw or choose pictures and other images to cut and paste. A brochure activity is a good one to do on the computer as well with Publisher.

A brochure activity can be done either individually (intrapersonal multiple intelligence learning style) or with a partner (interpersonal multiple intelligence learning style). You can have your students choose the day before how they would like to do the activity. That way you differentiate instruction for the different multiple intelligence learning styles. You will also have time to put them in partners you think will work the best, preferably one of the partners will have a strong linguistic multiple intelligence learning style and the other will have a strong spatial multiple intelligence learning style.

Teachers can differentiate instruction by providing their students with four options for activities all using different multiple intelligence learning styles and using the same content. Using activity templates can help teachers differentiate instruction more often during work sessions. When I started to allow students to choose their activity the day before I noticed that students looked forward to coming to class the next day because they had greater ownership over their education. It also allows you to make the correct copies needed for the activity.

What multiple intelligence learning styles are used for a post card activity?

When doing activities in the classroom, teachers should try to use as many multiple intelligence learning styles as possible especially if they don’t intent to differentiate instruction by giving students options of activities focusing on different multiple intelligence learning styles. I have noticed the more multiple intelligence learning styles I can use in an activity session the more interested more of my students are in it. The following are used in a post card activity:

  • Spatial Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Linguistic Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Intrapersonal Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Interpersonal Multiple Intelligence Learning Style

On the front of the post card is a picture or a drawing usually of the place one is visiting. The student with the spatial multiple intelligence learning style will not only appreciate but also enjoy this part of the post card activity. The drawing or picture selection could help to inspire them during the writing section also. Anytime a teacher can use art, the spatial multiple intelligence learning style is used.

On the other side of the post card is the writing section. Creative writing using content will interest those students with the linguistic multiple intelligence learning style and it can be a nice alternative to a paragraph or essay expository writing assignment. Make sure the students know what pieces of content to use in their writing. If you can provide a rubric to them before they start it will allow them to focus on what is really important for the assignment.

Post card activities can be done either individually (intrapersonal multiple intelligence learning style) or with a partner (interpersonal multiple intelligence learning style). I do not recommend doing this type of activity with a group because there will be a lot of students disengaged and it will lead to discipline problems in the class.

As mentioned previously, teachers can differentiate instruction for work session activities by providing students with options for activities based on different multiple intelligence learning styles. I tend to stop at four options. I also allow students to choose the day before an activity how they wish to work. In the case of the post card activity, I would allow them to choose if they want to work by themselves or with a partner. This differentiates instruction for the interpersonal and intrapersonal multiple intelligence learning styles. I do not allow them to choose who they work with. If they choose to work with a partner, then try to make a partnership between a linguistic and a spatial multiple intelligence learning style. Using activity templates can help save time in the planning process also.

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kasha-Mastrodomenico offers over 50 multiple intelligence learning style templates, like the post card above, to help decrease the planning process for differentiated instruction. They all include rubrics. Check it out! You can also get advice from Kasha Mastrodomenico by connecting with her on Linkedin.com.
