Case Study
The article describes the case of applying Doctor Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligence (MI) in Turkey. Information on the theory was popularized by the Ministry of National Education in a 2003 manual to be used by teachers in elementary school classrooms. To ascertain the theory's application, a private primary school spent two years working on reflecting multiple intelligence-based theory on education. The effects of multiple intelligence-based planning on students are considered.
