Olivet College alumnus to discuss Multiple Intelligences Theory
Oct 14, 2003

OLIVET, Mich.Olivet College alumnus Greg Adamus, who is the principal at Alpena High School, will present as part of the colleges Lecture and Symposium Series Wednesday, Oct. 22 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the colleges Mott Auditorium. The event, titled An Introduction to Multiple Intelligences Theory: Its not how smart you are, its how you are smart, is free and open to the public.

Howard Gardners Multiple Intelligences (MI) Theory suggests the traditional model of intelligence, based on I.Q. testing, is limiting. Gardners theory proposes eight different intelligences, including linguistic, logical, spatial, kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal and naturalist intelligence, which account for a broader range of human potential.

Adamus, a 1981 graduate of Olivet, will present the basic concepts of the MI Theory. Specific topics will include Binets IQ paradigm, the bell-shaped curve, context-bound assessment, cultural bias, standardized testing and school reform. Adamus will also discuss the effects MI Theory exposure has on perceptions of reality among high school students.

The audience will have an opportunity to complete a personal MI profile.

Adamus earned a masters from Eastern Michigan University and a doctorate from Walden University. He has taught in numerous high schools across Michigan, including Marshall High School.
