The Teacher/Student Venn Diagram is a fun, interactive way to learn about student and teacher responsibilities in a brand new classroom with a brand new teacher! Students make a Venn diagram to compare and contrast the role of the teacher and the student!
Nicole and I both displayed ours differently!
Super Smart Students: Celebrating Our Smarts!
The posters in our files used to look like this:
and now they look like this:
This lesson is inspired by Dr. Howard Gardner, a psychologist and professor from Harvard University. He developed the Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory in 1983.
Gardner believes each person has their own unique profile of the 9 intelligences (8 are described in this lesson) and no two people are the same!
This lesson shows students that we are all smart...in our own special way!
I place all the posters on butcher paper and keep this up all year long as a bulletin board in my classroom. I actually hear students say, "I am people smart" and "I am self smart so I want to work by myself!" I also show this to the parents at Curriculum Night and explain how I differentiate my lessons based on the needs of my students.
