In this lesson students will broaden and develop knowledge of certain vocabulary related to Cognitive Theory subject in the context of Multiple Intelligence(s) in the Classroom. Students will be working in pairs and groups in order to meditate and interact more so as to get an opportunity to comprehend certain vocabulary related to Cognitive Theory. Moreover, I am planning to also generate Teacher-Student interaction so as to get clarification of the aimed vocabulary in focus. The lesson will be short and to the point, covering the main elements of Multiple Intelligence(s) in the classroom.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification, review and practice of language used for Putting learning activities into practice. in the context of Multiple Intelligence(s) in the Classroom

Subsidiary Aims

  • To have students understand the purpose of Multiple Intelligence(s) in the Classroom and how these elements are presented and elicited.


Lead-in (1-2 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students thus incorporating a bit of intrapersonal viewpoint of learning.

I start the lesson by asking students if they remember the Multiple Intelligence(s) in the Classroom. They will be told to list them by working in groups of three since they will be sitting at their desks that way.

Exposure (1-2 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through visual/spatial learning approach.

I present the key vocabulary related to Multiple Intelligences by visual presentation (power-point).

Useful Language (2-3 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

Have students interact with the students sitting behind them so as they get some interpersonal activity in the class, and discuss about the meaning of the 7 multiple intelligences.

Productive Task(s) (7-8 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Have students work in threes and write short explanatory sentences about what Linguistic/Verbal Learner, Spatial/Visual Learner, Bodily/Kinaesthetic Learner, Interpersonal Learner and Naturalistic Learner is. After they spend 5 minutes constructing concise meaningful sentences about the above-said learning elements, have the students present their sentences to the class so as to elicit the proper understanding of the Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom, offer them a chance to demonstrate in order to incorporate bodily/kinaesthetic way of learning/teaching approach, and also provide the other students opportunities to correct their peers or reply to what each student presents, thus inducing interpersonal learning approach.

Feedback, Error Correction and Marking (6-8 minutes) • To provide students with opportunity to give feedback on the teaching ways and methods used, and also mark the teacher's p.erformance

After the Sts' presentation procedure is complete, I present the final visuals so as to clarify the meaning of the Multiple Intelligences. Shortly, after I will have students give feedback on the methodology of teaching, also have the students provide any error correction to the teaching methods, approach and techniques, finalizing it with marking of the presentation, thus providing a holistic evaluation of the performance.
