What kind of school plan you make is neither here nor there; what matters is what sort of a person you are.
Before applying any model of learning in a classroom environment, we should first apply it to ourselves as educators and adult learners, for unless we have an experiential understanding of the theory and have personalized its content, we are unlikely to be committed to using it with students. Consequently, an important step in using the theory of multiple intelligences (after grasping the basic theoretical foundations presented in Chapter 1) is to determine the nature and quality of our own multiple intelligences and seek ways to develop them in our lives. As we begin to do this, it will become apparent how our particular fluency (or lack of fluency) in each of the eight intelligences affects our competence (or lack of competence) in the various roles we have as educators.
