Reading is the cognitive process of acquiring information from written text, and all individuals acquire reading abilities differently. Howard Gardner developed the theory of multiple intelligences, focusing on content of learning and relationships between learning and specific intelligences, namely: Verbal-linguistic intelligence, Logical-mathematical intelligence, Visual-spatial intelligence, Bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, Musical intelligence, Interpersonal intelligence, Intrapersonal intelligence, and Naturalist intelligence. Several instructional programs, strategies, and techniques are discussed in terms of effective teaching practices for those students with reading difficulties. The research examined in this capstone seminar paper project will assist current and future educators with instruction involved in reading strategies to use for struggling readers.
