    I do agree with Howard Gaerner's thepry, because as he said, if there was only one kind of intelligence, we could teach everybody the same thing in the same way and it would be effective. It wouldn't matter how we would teach them. Everybody learns differently, and once we realize that, teaching everybody the same way is unfair. The school from the video in Georgia created a "Smartville" which allows the students to stretch their multiple intelligences, and do something that requires them to take responsibility. Once you learn about the multiple intelligences, the outcome of it is worth the extra work. Gardener's theory is genius.

  2. I agree with his theory and I think it's effective. I do believe that everybody learns differently, so his theory allows every student to learn. If teachers only teach one way, then it's only effective to a handful of students. His theory not only promotes diversity, but also allows each student to learn, beside their differences. I think this would be a good thing to do at Round Rock because whenever a teacher teaches a lesson, most of the time it only gets to a handful of people.

    I agree with his theory and I also believe everybody has a different way of learning. When a teacher is teaching a lesson not every student is paying attention. Some students need extra help and don't always get it on the first time like other students do. Once you learn about something that takes a long time to get a hang of. It is worth the while. His theory is really great actually.

  4. I do agree with Howard Gardner's theory because everyone learns differently and it's impossible to have one teaching method that will help every student. If we find a way to teach students the same information but teach the information differently to each kid, students would accel in school and learn and retain information much faster and easier. His theory is important for teacher's to realize so that when a student isn't grasping information, they can change the way that information is taught in order to fit the needs of that student.

  5. I do agree with Howard Gardners's theory. Every person has a different way they learn and understand things. If a teacher tries to teach the same way to every student, then it's more likely that a few students would retain the information better than other students, and some students may fall behind. His theory supports the idea that every student should be taught in the way that they can understand the objective fully, and that every student has a different way of learning.

  6. I agree with Howard Gardner's theory, because nobody learns the same way. Everybody learns in different ways, and if teachers tried to teach everyone the same way then multiple students would likely do poorly. His theory promotes diversity within the school environment. This diversity comes from the various ways that people learn.

    I agree with Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory. Every person learns and excels in different ways. Some people are especially good at prevail at arts, others in science or math. No one learns exactly like another even within the same intelligence. Schools and teachers need to learn to adapt to each intelligence and learn how to handle multiple intelligences in a single classroom to make sure each student is getting as much as possible from every class.

  8. I agree with the theory. everyone learns differently and even at a different speed. some are good at picking up things fast others not so much. I think teachers should be more willing to slow down if a student is struggling or at least try to help them and adapt to their students needs . no kid is the exact same and I think sometimes teachers forget that.

    I agree with Gardner's Theory. Everyone learns differently and are better at things then others are. Teachers shouldn't rely on one way of teaching because not every student will retain the information. Not every student is the same and learns at different paces. His theory shows that learning differently isn't a bad thing and that different teaching skills should be encouraged. His theory is effective and should be spread through schools globally to improve students success.

    I agree with his theory because as he stated, everyone would be successful if there was only one type of intelligence. I also consider it to be true because I have noticed that my friends and I are better at some things more than others, and that shows how each of us has a different type of intelligence/learning style. In my opinion, teachers should accommodate their classroom environment and their lesson plans so that every type of intelligence can succeed. These don't have to be drastic accommodations, but maybe do small activities for everyone to grasp the concept successfully. His theory is quite interesting because it efficiently explains why we're all different, and why we do better in certain subjects.

  11. I agree with Gardner's theory. As a student myself and what I have observes from others that students all learn at different rates and need different accommodations to enhance this learning. Therefore it would make perfect sense that one student may need a different level of teaching compared to another.

  12. I agree with Gardner's theory. While growing up in school, I have come across skills that have helped and challenged my thinking and learning. However, my friends and classmates can be accelerating at learning a lesson that I completely don't understand. This explains why, especially in elementary school, teachers mix around lesson plans--to have students explore their learning habits.

  13. I agree with Howard Gardner’s theory about different types of learning styles. Sometimes the reason a student doesn’t understand something they’re being taught isn’t because the student isn’t smart, but instead that they learn a different way. I personally am an auditory and visual learner, so if all of my reading is done out of a textbook on my own, I often have trouble getting all of the information unless I read it outloud to myself. Some students also take a longer time to understand a subject, but once they take the extra time to fully comprehend what they’re being taught, they can usually catch up so that they understand as well if not even better than those who understood from the beginning of the lesson.

  14. I agree with Howard Gardners theory. I think people learn in different ways and different speeds. I think a lot of teachers now are able to incorporate all different learning styles into lesson plans and are adaptable for everyone. I think the different styles really is true and how we learn is because of them.

  15. I agree with Howard Gardner’s theory. I believe that everyone has a different way of learning and people can learn faster than others. So if teachers only teach one certain way only a handful of students would be able to retain the information. People can be a visual, auditory, or hands on, so if you only teach visual the people who are more auditory or hands on won’t be able to understand the task they are given to do.

    I agree with Howard Gardner's theory. People learn in different ways and speeds. So it is useless to have one method to that will help every student. Some students need extra help and more practice because they don’t get it the first time. His theory is important for teachers and supports the idea of every student learns differently.

    I agree more with Howard Gardner's theory I believe that everyone has a different ways and speeds of thinking and learning. Some people need more help and practice than others on certain things. This doesn't make the student less smart, they just have a different way of thinking and that's ok!

  18. I agree with Gardners theory because if it wasnt correct we wouldnt need or have different teaching theories aimed to help students that learn in differing ways.

  19. I agree with Gardeners theory, because not everyone learns the same way. We all have different ways of understanding something, i know i learn better with someone showing me how to do it, then i apply it myself. but that not be the case for other students

  20. I agree with Gardners theory because as a student myself, I know that everyone learns different and if teachers are limited to one way of teaching most students wont excel. His theory explores the idea of teachers trying to expand there way of teaching to adjust to more students. It states how important all of the ways to learn are important.

    I agree with Gardners theory because all students are different and no one student learns the same as another. Just because students learn different doesn't mean they are less intelligent. I also agree with the idea that teachers must be open minded and understand one way of teaching will not work for all student.

    I agree with Gardners theory because i think every student does learn differently and being a student you compare how you learn to others around you. Some teachers dont understand how others may need extra help to understand something. because maybe their teaching doesnt work well for the student. I think teachers do need to work on making learning possible for each student.

    I agree with Gardner's theory because I feel all students understand and fully learn things differently. When a student learns a different way then another student it does not mean one student is better or smarter than the other it just means their minds are processing differently and Gardner makes a good response to that expressing how having different learning intelligences is a normal thing.

    I agree with Gardener's Theory. I believe that every child learns differently and that is exactly what his theory states. When children are placed in an environment where they are only taught something one way they can begin to feel less smart then the others when they don't understand as well as other students. However it just means they just don't learn in that particular way which is why I feel that each student learns differently and completely agree with Gardner's theory.

  25. I definitely agree with Gardeners theory. No two minds are alike therefore no two minds learn the same. For a child to be successful they need to be taught the way that is beneficial to them.

    I strongly agree with Gardner's theory because I strongly believe that all of the students were not just understanding but actually learn things differently. For an example when a student learns a differently than another student it doesn't mean one student is better or smarter than the other it just means their minds are processing differently and that is totally okay. I mean were all human and there is always going to be someone one step ahead of us. Also I thought it was good that Gardner was expressing that we all have different learning intelligence's is a normal human thing.
