Abstract

The purpose of this research is to investigate whether the implementation of Cooperative Learning (CL) activities, incorporating the insights given by Howard Gardner' (1993) theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) and the notion of Whole Language Approach (WLA) in college EFL classrooms will have a positive effect on students' language proficiency and attitude. A quasi-experimental study was developed. The site of this study was in an EFL classroom in a Taiwanese College. The subjects were from the researcher's three English classes at Chung Hwa Institute of Medical Technology during one semester. Many learning activities based on Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences were used while a Cooperative Learning approach was practiced.
