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 is the difference between the interpersonal learning style and the intrapersonal learning style?

interpersonal and intrapersonal learning styles

People with an intrapersonal learning styleoften enjoy working by themselves because they trust themselves due to the fact that they know themselves so well. They are often intrinsically motivated and hard workers. Where as people with an interpersonal learning style enjoy working with others in partners and groups. They are encouraged by others.

Deciding which of these learning styles you  or a student is can be confusing because they can overlap, as with any other intelligence. Just because you have an intrapersonal learning style doesn’t mean you don’t also have an interpersonal learning style to tack onto it. If you have both, you will feel comfortable in both settings but may prefer one over the other. I think of myself as having an intrapersonal learning style but I do work well with others when I need to. I prefer to work alone but do fine when working with others. I created a free multiple intelligence test, located at the link below, in order to help people find out which multiple intelligence they have and thus learning style.

What is an example of an intrapersonal learning activity?

Intrapersonal Learning Style

When I was teaching American History, I had a seventh grade girl who loved to help others and be involved in as many different conflicts as possible in her social group. I know what your thinking, ‘a 7th grade girl? You’re kidding!’. Ah sarcasm. Anyhow, I knew enough about people with an intrapersonal learning style to know that they are often the mediators, the conflict resolvers, the social workers and psychologists of their friends and eventually sometimes society as a whole. This is possible because those with an intrapersonal learning style know themselves so well they can usually find someway to relate to others.

This little girl was not interested in my subject whatsoever. So I thought I should try to intrigue her using her intrapersonal learning style. The content was the social structure of the South before the Civil War. I created an activity that was a set of problems that a person in each social class may have encountered. She had to come up with solutions to how each of them could solve their problems. She loved the activity and was really flattered that I had created it around her intrapersonal learning style.

I was able to present the content she needed through the use of intrapersonal teaching methods throughout the rest of the year. When teachers can differentiate instruction by using the intrapersonal learning style, in my experience, students will be more interested in the subject.

What careers are good for people with an intrapersonal learning style?

Pope John Paul II and Mother Theresa had Intrapersonal Learning Styles

If you have ever wondered what careers are good for those of your students with an intrapersonal learning style, I have some answers for you. Interpersonal grouping has been such a focus lately in schools that we forget that the intrapersonal learning style also need to be nourished. They hold just as much importance in professions as those who enjoy to work with others.

Just because intrapersonal learning styles prefer to work alone, doesn’t mean there is something wrong with them. It means that they trust themselves and how could that possibly be a bad thing? Don’t we want our students to have self confidence and be able to depend on themselves? There will be times when groups are not an option as many of the following professions show.

Entrepreneurs, like myself, are usually considered to have an intrapersonal learning style. I started my own business because I like to work alone. I enjoy creating differentiated lesson plans. I enjoy writing and I enjoy doing research. Each of these is done by myself. Don’t get me wrong, I like to work with others too, on things that are not connected to my business like the ARMY FRG and soccer teams, but I feel like I can depend on myself more to do things correctly for my own business. I don’t like waiting for others to finish or worse, having to check over and then fix what they’ve done. Many entrepreneurs, myself included, create their own businesses to work by themselves because they want to have more freedom to do things their own way. If you can’t tell by now, many of those with the intrapersonal learning style are perfectionists and goals setters. They feel that their ideas are good. They trust themselves enough to invest their time and money into their businesses. If someone doesn’t have an intrapersonal learning style, they should NEVER open their own business.

Clergy members have an intrapersonal learning style. Many of them work alone creating their sermons and taking care of  the church. They will do research on the church and learn the bible by themselves. This may be surprising to some but it is because they know themselves so well they can relate easily to others and help those in need. This is the same for psychologists and social workers.

Writers, philosophers, theorists and artists don’t work in groups either. They come up with their own ideas and then create, sometimes, masterpieces.

Architects, computer engineers, graphic designers, computer programmers, are some other professionals that have the intrapersonal learning style.

What is the intrapersonal learning style?

Intrapersonal Learning Style

The idea of an intrapersonal learning stylecomes from one of Howard Gardners original seven multiple intelligences; intrapersonal intelligence. Learning styles refer to how a student learns best. Intrapersonal learning stylelearns best when working alone. They are considered to be “self-smart”. They know themselves well. They are comfortable by themselves. They have self-confidence. They know how to plan and execute a task and trust themselves to get it done correctly. They depend on themselves and do not enjoy depending on others. Intrapersonal learners prefer to work alone.

Many times if the intrapersonal learner is put in a group activity they will be frustrated because they will take over the task, but everyone will get the credit. They will see this as unfair. They may also get frustrated with others who do actually do part of the assignment because their performance was not up to their standard of excellence.

There are many careers where the intrapersonal learning style is key. There will always be instances where people must lean on others for certain things or go to meetings to decide what is best, but for the most part many people in business work alone. Most paperwork is done alone. The more computers are used the more we are going to see a need for the intrapersonal learning style.

Do you need examples of intrapersonal learning activities?

Intrapersonal Learning Activities

 

Intrapersonal is a term that is used in education usually when referring to multiple intelligences. Intrapersonal intelligence or intrapersonal learning style is one of Howard Gardner’s original seven multiple intelligences. It represents the student that knows them self. Intrapersonal learners know how they work best and are usually self-motivated people.

There has been a push for the last 10-15 years or so for group work or interpersonal work. Don’t let that push deter you from offering intrapersonal learning activities as well. There is great value in a student being “self-smart”. In the adult world there will be an increasing number of people who work mostly alone, especially in the line of computer based businesses. Most of my work is done by myself. I research by myself, I write by myself and I create by myself.

If your school insists on interpersonal learning activities, perhaps you can use differentiated instruction and offer the same assignment using flexible grouping i.e. offer the same assignment in group work, partners and self work. The students with the intrapersonal learning style will appreciate it.

Students with the intrapersonal learning style will sometimes get very frustrated working with others because they understand the task, they have already made a plan to complete that task by themselves and will usually take over the project if placed in a group. They will resent working in a group because, even though they have offered to take the assignment on by themselves, the whole group gets credit for their work. It can be quite frustrating for them. Below is a list of intrapersonal learning activities that you can offer to your students.
