Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the level of multiple intelligences to Primary Stage Arabic Teachers in Jordan, and its relevance to the experience and qualification. To achieve this, the researcher randomly selected a clusters randomized sample of (92) teachers of Arabic language in the primary stage at Amman Second Directorate of Education (45 male and 47 females). For the purposes of study, the researcher developed an (80) items survey for multiple intelligences, distributed over eight sections to represents a kind of multiple intelligence, and to ensure the validity of the test content, it was reviewed by experienced arbitrators. Reliability coefficient was also confirmed for the test sample through administering it to a pilot study and, the "Cronbach Alpha" factor was (0.90). The results of the study showed that Teachers of Arabic language have the eight types of intelligences in varying degrees, and they have based on their response to the measure of multiple intelligences a moderate degree of intelligence in: Intrapersonal, Linguistic, verbal social, Naturalist, Logical Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily- Kinaesthetic one after the other. While the musical intelligence was low. and all kinds of multiple intelligences of Arabic teachers was not high. The study showed also that there were no statistically significant differences in the level of multiple intelligences due to Experience and a Qualification. The study recommended to Use Multiple Intelligence teaching strategies for different levels. And to Train Arabic language teachers on multiple intelligence types.
