dc.description.abstract Teachers today deal with many issues in their classrooms from student behaviour problems to curriculum concerns. Many teachers are searching for fresh and innovative ways to approach these issues. One approach that has been moving through the United States and Canada is the Multiple Intelligences approach to teaching. These strategies are based on the Multiple Intelligences theory developed by Howard Gardner in 1983 that all people have within them many "intelligences" or capabilities. This study, which describes a workshop conducted for the teachers and assistants of Lethbridge School District #51, outlines Multiple Intelligences teaching strategies and is designed to help educators feel more comfortable using these strategies in their classrooms. A pre-workshop questionnaire guided the creation of the workshop and a post-workshop questionnaire indicated most participants gained knowledge and confidence as a result of attending the workshop. Recommendations for changes to future Multiple Intelligences workshops were suggested by the participants as well as an interest in further communication to support teachers who wish to use the strategies in their classrooms. en
