You may also awnt to review the “Brain Based Learning and its Relation with Multiple Intelligence”, “Intelligence: Foundations and Issues in Assessment”, and “Rising Scores on Intelligence Test”, articles from the recommended resources, After examining the research in human development presented in your required resources, complete the following discussion:The definition of intelligence is controversial. Briefly contrast different views of intelligence, making sure you take into account the content of at least one of the videos. Discuss one of the controversies that surround the definition of intelligence, the measurement of intelligence, or the sources of individual differences.Your initial post must be at least 300 words and use a minimum of one scholarly source located in the Ashford University Library or on Google Scholar that is cited and referenced according to APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center which reports the scientific evidence that supports or weakens the opposing views of the controversy you selected.Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers in a minimum of 200 words.
