Hey dear friends:
tomorrow I have to talk about multiple intelligences, I know that the topic might not be appealing to my students, they just don īt care about those things. How can I start?  I thought maybe could be a good idea to show some part of a movie or I don īt know maybe a song? Please help me.
As always I will be very thankful.

If I were you I would make they feel it involving them in different kind of activities according to  Gardnerīs theory so they could  be aware and after that, you could explain about the theory. I mean first do what the multiple intelligences say in class and after give the reasons.

I hope have helped,

Have a look at this simplified version of multiple intelligences:
You can prepare a questionnaire involving the things they like doing and let them do it without mentioning anything about the theory.After they have done it ask them why they think they like these activities and gradually present the theory.
I hope I have helped you.
