Roman Catholic educator and author of How Each Child Learns, Bernadette Stankard, applies the theory of Multiple Intelligences to the religious education classroom. While geared specifically toward the Roman Catholic faith formation process, those of other denominations and faiths will find her practical guidelines easy to apply to their own contexts. Topics include making the religious education classroom friendly to Multiple Intelligences, incorporating Multiple Intelligences into lesson plans, prayer and personal spirituality as expressed through Multiple Intelligences, and the relationship of Multiple Intelligences to the sacraments and the liturgical year. An appendix of religious education activities that take Multiple Intelligences into account can be applied to children’s, young adult, and adult faith formation.
