The module discussed the fact that this type of learner needs music for a learning environment. What are some practical ways of applying this in a classroom setting?

Playing music in the background may work for a few students, but once when I tried it, some of the students asked me to turn it off because it bothered them. Another time, I allowed a student to listen to his own music (privately on a CD player--this was before the ipod) while he was writing an essay in class. Ironically, I was unable to use that time to grade papers as I usually do because I found the music too distracting (yes, I could hear it despite the fact that he was several rows away from where I sat).

Obviously, I need help in developing ways to teach to this type of intelligence.
