Workshop leader and co-editor of research publication Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry & Practice, the Rev. Ronald J. Nuzzi, applies Multiple Intelligence theory to religious education in a way applicable to all denominations and faith traditions. Nuzzi explores the language-related intelligences, which include linguistic and musical, the object-related intelligences, which include logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, and naturalistic, and the person-related intelligences, which include interpersonal and intrapersonal. This slim volume is a quick read and easy reference. Resources such as sample lessons, enhancement strategies for educators, and applications of the intelligences to worship life make it a versatile guide for religious educators, both clergy and lay.
