Headline: About this site

Multiple Intelligences for Adult Literacy and Education was originally developed in 1991–92 as a print-based kit called "Honoring Diversity: a Multidimensional Learning Model for Adults." It was created by Leslie Shelton, Joan Sheldon Conan, and Holly Fulghum-Nutters, and it was funded by the California State Library Foundation.

This site was adapted by Leslie Shelton, Paul Heavenridge, and Cheshire Dave Beckerman to take advantage of the multimedia capabilities of the Web, which has the potential to address each of the intelligences.
