What helps you learn better, when you read things, when you see its visual presentation, or when you feel or experience it? Previewing Gardner defines an intelligence as a new kind of construct. He calls it a "biological and psychological potential" The extent to which that potential is realized depends upon the experiential, cultural and motivational factors that affect the individual. In this lesson you will be able to learn the different learning styles that everyone possesses based on the eight multi-intelligences. Day 1 - Listening 1. Pre-Listening Pair off and share with your partner your answer to these questions: 1) When do you say a person is intelligent?

2) 3)

When do you say he/she is dull? When do you call a person talented or gifted?

2. Listening Proper Teacher reads the listening text; instructs the students to answer several questions later. Listening Text: Intelligence, Anyone? When we talk about intelligence, we do not mean the ability to get a good score in a test or even the ability to do well in school. These things are only indicators of something far more important. By intelligence, we mean a way of behaving in various situations; particularly, new and problematic ones. The true test of intelligence is not how much we know how to do things, but how we behave when we don't know what to do. The intelligent person, meeting a new situation, opens himself up to it and grapples with it imaginatively and hopefully. He thinks about the problem, rather than what it might cost if it should happen to him. Even if he fails, he looks without shame at his mistakes and tries to learn from them. This is intelligence. Clearly, the roots of intelligence lie in a certain feeling about life. Unintelligence, on the other hand is an entirely different set of attitudes. Bright and dull children, then, are very different. The bright child is curious about life and is eager to get involved in it. There is no wall between him and life. The dull child, however, is more interested in the world of fantasy. The bright child likes to experiment, to try things out. If he can't do something in one way, he'll try another. However, the dull child is usually afraid to try at all. If he does try and then fails, he gives up. The bright child is patient. He can tolerate uncertainty and failure, and will keep trying until he gets an answer. When all his experiments fail, he can even admit to himself that for the time being, he is not going to get an answer. This may annoy him, but he can wait. Very often he does not want to be told how to do the problem or solve the puzzle he has struggled with, since this would deprive him of the chance of working it out for himself at a later attempt. However, the dull child cannot stand uncertainty or failure. To him, an unanswered question is not a challenge or an opportunity, but a threat. If he can't work out the answer quickly, it must be given to him. The bright child is willing to get ahead on the basis of incomplete information and understanding. In other words, he will take risks. To give an example, he will often read a book he does not immediately understand in the hope that he will gradually collect enough information to make it meaningful. However, the dull child will only go ahead when he knows exactly what to expect. He also needs total comprehension of whatever he's experiencing. For the dull child, then, the world we live in is senseless and unpredictable. He feels that he can never tell what may happen, particularly in a new situation, except that it will most probably be bad. The bright child, however, feels the world to be a reasonable, fascinating and comfortable place. 1. What are the writer's views about intelligence? 2. Do you agree with such views? With which don't you agree? Why? 3. The text presents a comparison. Who are being compared? 4. Where do you think you belong? Cite some characteristics with which you can identify yourself.

3. Post-Listening (Evaluation) In your opinion, what are the characteristics of an intelligent person? Complete the list below

Now discuss your answers with your partner. Day 2 Grammar In Mathematics, you meet the equal sign (=). You have learned that the items on both sides of the equal sign have the same value. They mean the same thing such that one can stand for the other. In language, we also have the equational sentences. Study these sentences and find out which items are equated 1. Bright and dull children are very different. 2. The bright child is curious. 3. The dull child is inclined to live in an unreal, fantasy world. Here are some guide questions that will help you determine how to make equational sentences. 1. In an equational sentence, what would stand for the equal sign? 2. What would stand for the item before the equal sign? 3. What items may come after the equal sign? Remember: An equational sentence usually follows this pattern: Subject . . . (Noun) Linking verb . . . . Verb: to be seem appear feel Activity 1. Tell something about yourself by providing the blanks with an appropriate predicate noun or predicate adjective. Subject Complement Noun, adjective infinitive

My name is _________________ but I'm ____________________ to my friends. I'm twelve years old. I was born in Manila. I'm the ________________ in the family. Both my parents are ______________. My father's name is _______________________. My mother's name is ___________________. My friends say that I am ______________. This is ______________ because I usually cry when I am ______________.

3. Post Writing You may have a different view of an intelligent person. Describe his characteristics in a paragraph form Day 5 Literature 1. Motivation What mark of greatness is shown by the boy in this story? The Boy Who Couldn't Sing "You cannot sing," Mario declared. "You can do nothing but cut pieces of woodwith a knife. Of what good is that to you? It won't keep you from starving." "My brother is right. I can do nothing but cut bits of wood with a knife," thirteen-year-old Armando thought sadly. His brother's words were ringing in his ears. His brothers, Mario and Alejandro, could make music but he couldn't. The earned good money with their music, too. As they walked along, Mario and Alejandro chatted happily. Their dreams of the fame and fortune from their music filled their hearts with joyful expectations. But Armando said little. Mario's remarks that he could do nothing but whittle made his heart heavy. He loved music, yet he could not share in making it. He could not even strum a guitar. He couldn't sing either. He was a monotone. When he tried to sing he sounded funny. It made the boys laugh. They made fun of his voice and his singing. It was hard to be just a whittler when his brothers and friends could play the guitar and sing well, too. What was his future as a whittler? This thought troubled him. That night he did not sleep. His mind was busy with an idea that had just come. He could not sing. He was only good at whittling. Couldn't he use it to achieve something? Here in his own native Maragondon, Lapulapu City, was a man who make fine guitars with knife and wood. Before sun up the next day, Armando got up with a happy heart. After helping himself to what was left over from last night's supper, he crept out of the house while his parents and brothers were still asleep. He took with him some articles he had made with his knife. He walked to Fernando's Guitar Shop and presented himself to Tiyo Fernando. " I have brought these things for you to see," he said. "I cut them out with my knife: will you help me learn to make fine guitars?" Tiyo Fernando smiled. "Why do you want to make fine guitars?" he asked. Armando's face lit up and he spoke, "Because I love music. Both my brothers can sing. They can play the guitar, too. I love music as much as they, but I'm a monotone. I can do nothing but whittle. By making guitars I believe I can contribute my share to making music." Tiyo Fernando laid his hand on Armando's shoulder, "Come into the shop. Your interest deserves attention," he declared. Armando went with him into the shop. "The important thing is the desire to learn and make good," Tiyo Fernando told Armando. So, Amando, the boy who could not sing, became an apprentice in Fernando's Guitar Shop. Day after day, he worked seriously and whittled patiently. At last he finished a guitar. It was a fine guitar. Tiyo Fernando was much pleased with it. There was no doubt Armando would make an excellent guitar maker. Tiyo Fernando taught him the secrets of the craft. He showed Armando that each little thing well done each day would lead to a great achievement. 2.

Evaluation Based on the assessment of your Multi-Intelligences called "Pathways to Learning", can you now understand yourself better? Will you be able to enhance your strengths and improve on your limitations?

Using the Inductive Web on page 31, let us now summarize the story by recalling important things in the story. 1. What are the things that Mario and Alejandro could do? (Teacher to record the responses of the students on the web) 2. On the other hand, what are the things that Armando could not do but he could do some other things? 3. Notice that the central element of the web is left blank. In order to answer it, let the students with the help of the teacher form conclusions and generalizations about what they have read.
