Marjorie Hall Haley is a tenured Associate Professor of Education in the Graduate School of Education at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
Dr. Haley's interest in the Theory of Multiple Intelligences was inspired by a keynote address given by Howard Gardner in 1998. Convinced that MI Theory could be effectively applied in foreign and second language instruction, Dr. Haley initiated plans for a research study in secondary classrooms. This study is one of the first to investigate the impact of MI activities on student achievement and motivation in FL and ESL classes.
The purpose of the MI Research Study is to identify, document, and promote effective applications of the MI Theory in educational settings. This research project provides support for teachers as they develop and implement innovative instructional and assessment strategies aligned with the Multiple Intelligences Theory.
