The research focused on the evaluation process of the multiple intelligences of the schoolchildren, for which an Educational institution of the Urban sector of the Manabí province of the Portoviejo canton was chosen, determining the influence of these intelligences in the teaching-learning processes, for which a survey was applied with a sample of 22 teachers. The results obtained indicated, that teachers have little knowledge of multiple intelligences, do not consider them for their classes. Handle the theory and although they consider it important, they do not use it in their strategies, nor do they model them in their classes, they always use the same strategy and the same means according to the content regardless of the characteristics of the student. This article defines that with a diagnosis a new proposal of optional courses, workshops and creditable extension activities related to the Multiple Intelligence Theory can be generated; strategies for their identification and use within the classroom, how to organize learning environments enriched with tactics, and means to promote their motivation and interest in training.
