Multiple Intelligences, Language Proficiency and Learning Styles of Indigenous People: Basis for the Development of Intervention Program
Proficiency serves as a key to unlock difficulties. Learning style is the way in which individual learner begins to concentrate on, process, and absorb new and difficult material, and multiple intelligences develop human potentials. Now that the Indigenous People (IP) particularly the IP students are attending regular school they should be given remediation to cope up with the academic demands of schooling. The study attempted to determine the predominant multiple intelligence and learning style of the IP students. It also determined the proficiency level of the IP students to come up with an intervention program which is remediation. A questionnaire on Multiple Intelligences, VAK Learning Styles survey, and English Language Proficiency Test were utilized in this study. Data were analyzed using the descriptive statistics, frequency, percentage, chi square, and ANOVA. The respondents’ predominant intelligence is musical and predominant learning style is visual. The respondents’ English Language Proficiency is non-proficient. There is no significant relationship among the three variables. There is no significant difference in the English Language Proficiency level and learning style of the respondents according to their types of intelligence. Teachers handling IP students should note the predominant intelligence of the learners for them to easily learn the concepts being taught. In relation to language learning as a whole, teachers should focus their attention in the preparation of instructional materials since the predominant learning style of the respondents is visual to enhance their language proficiency in English. An intervention program which is remediation should be implemented and a module to increase the English proficiency level of the IP respondents should be developed.
