Interpersonal Intelligence

What is it? 

  • Sensitivity to the feelings and moods of others
  • Understanding and interacting effectively with others

Students are likely to...

  • enjoy many friends
  • lead, share, and mediate
  • build consensus and emphathize with others
  • Work as an effective team member

How students use the interpersonal intelligence in the classroom: 

  • Use cooperative learning
  • Participate in group projects
  • Allow students to take part in peer teaching opportunities
  • Allow students to give feedback to one another

Social-emotional development is integral to the New City experience: the personal intelligences—interpersonal and intrapersonal—are the foundation for everything we do. Hear from our faculty about Social-Emotional Learning and The Personals in this video.
