In the late 1970, the directors of the Bernard van Leer Foundation invited a team of professors from Harvard University’s Graduate School of education to respond to a daunting challenge: Discover a way for every human being to develop to his or her maximum potential. Out of this collaboration of dozens of esteemed professionals came the theory of multiple intelligences (MI).
In 1983, Howard Gardner, a project team member, published Frames of Mind, which sets out the theory in some detail. In this book, Gardner posits that traditional notions of intelligence, which are largely based on I.Q. testing, do not sufficiently address the range of cerebral engagement. In short, various types of intelligence should be considered because different minds have different strengths. For too long, our notion of intelligence has been too narrow.
Originally, Gardner identified seven areas of human intelligence: verbal-linguistic, musical, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. A short time later, Gardner added an eighth intelligence: naturalistic.
Traditional school curriculum in Western culture has heavily emphasized learning through the verbal-linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligences. This has, according to Gardner, left many students poorly served by our educational system. Gifts in other areas of intelligence, such as the arts, should be identified and encouraged as well. Also, different methodologies of conveying information should be used to engage the distinct strengths of students with varying types of intelligence.
Gardner and others, like author Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D., have done much of cause the American educational establishment to rethink the way children learn in school. Many universities include courses about multiple intelligences, and teachers are often encouraged to use the theory of MI in planning their lessons. The result of this reevaluation of intelligence has begun to transform the way teachers teach.

The heroines are in the house. In recent years, there has been a boom of young (YA) literature that has taken readers, and bestseller lists, by storm. Though YA novels have existed nearly as long as the novel itself, current YA novels have reinvented the genre. Now they tend to focus on the plight of a central heroine, a young girl tasked with dismantling the oppressive dystopia she lives in to save her friends and her family. The success of these stories is finally making Hollywood sit up and pay attention to the possibility of how lucrative female-led movies can be, and more female-driven films than ever are taking top spot at the box office.
6.Which of the following is the source of this passage?
Young adult novel
7.Below are several trends being discussed in the media. Which of the following trends resembles the theme of the passage’s description of YA literature?
More students are graduating from college in debt than ever before, and they are flooding the job market.
A new cooking technique is being introduced in culinary schools across the world to great success.
The percentage of people under 30 getting married has decreased greatly in the last 20 years.
An automaker redesigned one of its standard models, and now it is one of their top sellers.
Read the passage below before answering the question.
Storytellers known as bards were an important element in sustaining Celtic civilization. They were trained at barding schools where they learned hundreds of poems and different styles of verse. Some bards trained for up 7 years. In addition to singing memorized poems, they composed poems of their own to celebrate important events or commemorate fallen leaders. Many scholars believe that the bards of Brittany, a region in northwest France, and those of Wales created and passed on the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Without the oral traditions, these stories would have been lost.

Bards trained for as long as 7 years and learned different styles of verse.
In addition to singing memorized poems, bards would compose poems of their own.
Poems written by bards celebrated important events and commemorated fallen leaders.
9.Which of the following best rephrases the topic of the passage? A. The events that led to sustaining Celtic civilization.
