The multiple intelligence theory had been widely adapted in all areas of education such as in the area of instructional design, construction of learning models and assessments as the philosophy and basis of the multiple intelligence concepts. It allows educators to plan educational programs that will help students to develop based on their innate potentials and to achieve their desired end states in which it helps students in realizing their dreams. Teachers will be able to present the materials of the subject matter in a flexible manner and providing opportunities for students in the classroom to use their dominant strengths and intelligences at the same time. In addition, multiple intelligence approach in education ensures that students learn and retain information of the subject matter longer than other available teaching approaches (Rettig, 2005). In doing so, teachers could gain by expanding their repertoire of teaching approaches and innovative.
