Describe how the forces of nature and nurture have influenced the development of one of Gardner’s multiple intelligences in your own life. If you had to select a number representing the importance of nature and nurture in shaping this intelligence (1 being the least effect, 10 being the strongest effect), what number would you choose for each one, and why? Be sure to justify your answer with scientific evidence from your reading.
Conclude with a brief discussion about whether or not you believe subjects like art, music, gym, etc. should be emphasized equally with other subjects like reading and math, in order to teach Gardner’s multiple intelligences directly to school-aged children. Why or why not?
