Headline: Practice: Engaging the Intelligences

Icon: Body movement intelligenceSocial

People who are strong in the social intelligence like to develop ideas and learn from other people. They like to talk. They have good social skills.

Here are ways to work with this intelligence in your lessons:

  • Take part in group discussions or discuss a topic one-to-one.

  • Read a dialogue or a play together.

  • Do team learning/investigating projects.

  • Set up interview questions, and interview your family. Write the results.

  • Write notes to one another instead of talking.
