The reason I am interested in the Theory of Multiple Intelligences is both for my own educational growth and to help students in my classroom who do not respond productively to rote memorization and direct instruction. Students who do not retain or understand information presented in this traditional format are often labeled or thought of as incapable, inadequate, or struggling learners; in some cases, causing them to develop a sense of low self-esteem. My intent is to review literature and examine if there is a relationship between a teacher's instructional style and student success. As an educator, I want to use the most effective and efficient methods of teaching to engage my students because student success, motivation, and curiosity are paramount to me. I also believe that by looking at new avenues, methods, and learning styles, we may contribute to student success.
