The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of an instructional program based on multiple intelligences theory (MIT) on the basic stage students’ achievement in English. The study was carried out in the academic year 2011 – 2012 in Al-Mafraq District. The participants of the study were Eighth grade students. Eight sections were selected. four sections as an experimental group , and the other four sections as a control group. To answer the questions of the study, the researcher designed a training program based on MIT for training eighth grade teachers and an achievement test in order to measure the development of the students’ achievement in English. These tools were validated and their inter-scorer reliability was ensured. The results of the research showed a statistically significant difference between the achievement scores of the experimental group and the control group in favor of the students in the experimental group who were taught using the MIT. Based on the above results, the study offered many recommendations that might be useful for developing student’s achievement in English, such as the need for designing other training program for pre-service teachers whether employed at public or private schools, and the need to measure the effect of using MIT in variety of settings from elementary through secondary schools.
