Özet

Background: Multiple Intelligences theory (MITE was developed as an account of human cognition. Gardner (1993) asserts that MIT is very important and beneficial for educational implications. Different studies supports that there are potentials to enhance the educational practices through MIT (Harvard Project Zero, 2004) and positive effects occur on students, teachers, and parents. The initial findings of the studies support the idea that implementations of NUT for a year have constructive effects on all individual in teaching and learning process (Saban, 2002). However, the study of the effects of MIT on 1(st) graders' Literacy Education (LE) is somewhat rare or left unstudied while the research literature abounds with the effects of the principles of MIT on different subjects in different grades.
