Informational Books

According to the text, “children in the intermediate school years find informational or nonfiction books an invaluable part of their school lives, not only for use in research projects, but also to satisfy their own native ‘intelligences’” (p. 242).  Reflect on how knowledge of Gardner’s multiple intelligences and an awareness of a students’ learning style and preferences can be used to motivate reluctant readers.  Support your position with the inclusion of one book selection summarized in your own words and correlated to one or more of Gardner’s eight intelligences.
