Intelligence

Teaching Tip:  Take the time to address the question of intelligence.  There is a common misunderstanding that intelligence is fixed, monolithic, predetermined, and unchangeable.  All of these ideas are  untrue.  Bring up Gardner’s multiple intelligences idea, as well as have a discussion of the relationship between nature and nurture regarding development of intelligence.
