    Thanks for the excellent question, Esther!

    These are not the same in that the Mita approach uses MI theory in its five step approach, as briefly illustrated at http://www.brainleadersandlearners.com/mita-approaches/five-checkpoints-to-brain-based-learning/ In addition you will find more about each step at this site if you search under the topics question, target, expect, move, reflect.

    All the best with your studies, Esther. Ellen

    Dear Dr. Weber,

    My name is Esther and I’m conducting a study on how teaching approaches which are based on theory of Multiple Intelligences can benefit young children’s learning.

    Is there as significant difference between M.I. Teaching Strategies (by Dr. Thomas Armstrong) and M.I. Teaching Approach (MITA) by you, Dr. Weber?

    Or can the teaching or instructional approach based on the theory of M.I. be generalsied as MITA?

    Would really appreacite your advice.

    Thank you

    Dr. Weber,

    I have been reading some of your blog and online publications. I find your work fascinating. Your words are as scientific as they are practical. Specifically I am most concerned with your posts on the Amygdala. I find it so interesting, but I also find many similarities to other studies. For instance, certain drugs like LSD and ‘mushrooms’ have been known to suppress the amygdala with amazing results for combating PTSD, anxiety, and emotional trauma. Also, it reminds me of what many renowned philosophers speak of when they speak of enlightenment – such as Jiddu Krishnamurti and OSHO – I suspect that perhaps all of these findings are related to the amygdala, and that perhaps controlling it, as well as your serotonin production is the same enlightenment found in meditation, prayer, and drugs. I think that there is something to hold on to here, and that the public world can be saved by some of your findings when combined with practical methods. I would love to speak to you more about this, my email is attached.

    Best regards
