My name’s Thao. Today, I would like to share some advantages of “Multiple Intelligences Test” to the development of young children. In my opinion, it is a very useful test for young children. This is because of two main reasons.
Firstly, it is the best way for teacher to decide the strongest field of students. Through this kind of test, teachers will know the strong points and weak points of students. Hence, they can find out the best teaching methods to develop the strengths and improve the weakness to help students develop completely. For example, to students are in Logical/Mathematical intelligence who have ability to do things with data, teachers can strengthen this intelligence by encouraging the use of computer programming languages, critical-thinking activities, linear outlining, or logic puzzles, and ect. As for students who are in Musical Intelligence, Teachers can integrate activities into their lessons that encourage students’ musical intelligence by playing musical instruments for the class or singing to make a happy atmosphere as well as develop students’ ability. This will help the lesson become more interesting and effective.
Secondly, through this way, teacher can understand deeply about their students not only in studying but also in their emotion. Children are persons who are not old enough to recognize everything happening around them. They need love, care, and anything they like. Therefore, we shouldn’t ask them to learn what we like or what the society need. This will make them unenjoyable and streess. Understanding them and talking with them like their mother or father will help them study effectively. This is the reason why we should use this kind of test in teaching young children.
Finally, I want to say that if you want to be good at teaching young children, you must understand them fisrt. A modern English teacher is the person who is not only enthusiastic but also creative in teaching. A teacher is also a mother of young children. Through my journal, I hope that all of you will understand more about the advantages of “Multiple Intelligences Test” and apply for your job in the near future.
