Our Teaching Theories: Global Principles with Practical Experiences

 

At ARISTLE Gifted Institute, we combine global principles with our rich practical experiences as gifted children and gifted education practitioners to design our unique curricula to unleash our students’ true gifted potential.

 

Practicing Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences and other renowned scholars’ theories, ARISTLE Gifted Institute incorporates different teaching methods including cooperative learning, experimental learning, self-reflection, visualization, and so forth, into our diverse curricula to stimulate our students’ development in the different areas of multiple intelligences and to encourage whole brain learning.
