Why are you called "Pip Lab"?>>>>>>>> There are 8 Pips, each representing one of the 8 Multiple Intelligences. They are tiny and cute, the squibbly ghosts of thought and discovery inside each of us. I began to draw these little squishies for students as a way to liven up lessons, gradually developing them into a story and mythology unto themselves. Now, they are an integral part of how I explain M.I. to my students and encourage their individual strengths. And, of course, the beauty of "pips" is that each student has their own "Pip Profile" of intelligence, tiny avatars that represent their unique strengths and growth. Much like "leveling up" your avatar, students love watching their Pips grow in each of the corresponding intelligences: verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical, visual-spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, intrapersonal, interpersonal, and naturalist.
