Journal of Student Engagement: Education Matters


Inclusion ensures education is accessible to all students regardless of age, race, gender and abilities. Teachers differentiate the classroom environment along with the content and its delivery, in order to cater for all students’ needs at an individual and class level. Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences (MI) can be used as a mediator, to differentiate how students access this content. Using MI-inspired lessons allows students to explore important concepts using a range of domains, and find information based on their own abilities. This paper addresses issues around using multiple intelligences to create an inclusive classroom.
