ABSTRACT
This study aims at investigating the levels of English teachers to employ materials and activities based on multiple intelligences theory by some variables. The population comprises 176 English teachers from 80 primary schools in Malatya city center during 2006-2007. The participants are 102 English teachers from 32 primary schools chosen randomly. A scale developed by the researcher was used as the medium. The data was analyzed using frequency, percentage, t-test, ANOVA, and LSD analysis. Results showed English teachers utilize multiple-intelligences theory at moderate level and cannot devote balanced importance to intelligence types. Moreover no significant difference was observed in terms of gender, the program of graduation, and seniority, while there was a significant difference in terms of type of school in favor of private schools.
