Abstract

The research question addressed in this capstone washow can students increase effort to learn by expanding their intrapersonal intelligence? The question grew out of the desire to move away from teacher management to engagement of children as active participants in their education. The capstone focuses on two characteristics: Intrapersonal Intelligence and effort. Key influences were Carol Dweck, Howard Gardner and Maura Sellars. The author defined seven pedagogical strategies from her research. The method used was an ethnographic one. The research paradigm was one of mixed methods gathering qualitative information through observation and quantitative information from responses to the questionnaire that was developed from the field notes. The author measured her data against the pedagogical strategies and found that the strategies presented ways in which to increase effort and Intrapersonal Intelligence to increase student engagement in learning.
