Keywords:multiple itelligences, vocabulary mastery, students' responses
In 1983, Gardner proposed eight types of intelligences: verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, body/kinesthetic, musical/rhythmic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic intelligence. The intelligence can be improved by age and in certain ability level. Thus, in the context of classroom practice, teaching should be conducted variously. In this study, multiple intelligences theory was used to improve students’ vocabulary mastery which done through classroom action research. The result showed that MI theory improved students’ vocabulary mastery and students also showed positive responses toward the learning process.
