Abstract. Starting from the idea that performance in learning depends on motivation and the degree of stimulation each activity offers, we must provide our students with a large range of experiences, in such a way as to include those that will ensure their efficient learning, suitable for their dominant intelligence or intelligences. According to the theory of multiple intelligences, each individual possesses at least nine different intelligences, with different ways of learning and particular ways of expressing the knowledge they accumulate. Each man is a unique combination of abilities in various degrees of development and manifestation. Therefore, teachers should take these differences between their students into consideration and may choose to treat them differently in the teaching – learning – assessing process. For this reason, the present paper aims at analysing some aspects regarding ways to identify behaviours specific for different types of intelligence by systematic observation and also ways to stimulate multiple intelligences by making use of interactive teaching methods.
