Taghrid Al-Omari, Ruba Bataineh, Oqlah Smadi

Abstract


This study examines the potential incorporation of the principles of the Multiple Intelligences Theory in the Jordanian Action Pack textbook for the first-, fourth-, eighth- and eleventh-grades by means of content analysis. The findings reveal that unlike the moral, existential and spiritual intelligences, which are not incorporated at all, the verbal/linguistic, intrapersonal and spatial/visual intelligences are better represented than other intelligences in the activities of the textbook. The findings further reveal that the incorporation of multiple intelligences is fairly unbalanced among the four levels of the textbook.
