Structure of Intellect Workshop
This workshop is especially designed for teachers and parents. Its purpose is to provide an introduction to the Structure of Intellect Model of human intelligence.
The model provides valuable insights into student’s intellectual abilities and provides an understanding of how we can help develop their weaknesses and enhance their strengths. It provides a valuable means for diagnostic observation of how children’s intellectual abilities are developing.
This workshop runs for two days. Participants will gain an understanding of the Structure of Intellect Model which includes the broad dimensions of the model and the individual abilities defined within it. The diagnostic uses of the models will be discussed with special emphasis on reading and arithmetic.
Finally, activities and materials to help improve abilities will be discussed.
9:00 – 9:30
9:30 to 12:00
Take the test
12:00 – 1:00
1:00 – 4:00
History of the Structure of Intellect; how is the information gained from the Structure of Intellect different from other IQ testing; true multiple intelligence; the major dimension of the model; the models connections to neurological and physiological factors and other theorists in human intelligence.
Return tests with results; begin discussion of individual abilities in the model; identify those strongly related to academic achievement; what to look for in strengths and weaknesses.
1:00 – 2:00
Reading related abilities; arithmetic and math; writing; diagnostic implications
1:00 – 4:00
Activities to improve sensory motor development and enhance abilities; question time
