Effect of Multiple Intelligences’ Teaching on Academic Achievement of High Achievers in Science at Elementary Level

Iram Naz


Every human being has different types of intelligences. Through the usage of multiple intelligences theory, individuals may be encouraged to use their preferred intelligences in their own learning area, and instructional activities may be appealed to different forms of intelligences. Teachers are using multiple intelligences of students to increase their learning. The main aim of the study was to find the effect of multiple intelligences’ based teaching on academic achievement of high achievers in science at elementary level. The objectives of the study were to find out the MIBT’s effect on academic achievement of high achievers of science students at elementary level. Population of the study was 88 Girls Middle & Secondary Schools of District Nowshera, 60 female students were sample of the study. Study was proceeded using quasi experimental design; involved two groups and it was pre-post-tested. One group was called experimental group received an unusual treatment of MIBT and other was control group received usual treatment. It was found that method of MIBT was comparatively better than traditional method. It was recommended that MIBT may be implemented in science at elementary level and teachers may be trained through pre-post service trainings accordingly. It may fulfill the requirements of science students.
