Fluency is the ability to recall and connect background information and ideas. This is one of four basic creative thinking skills that Bob Iseminger teaches in his Creativity & Creative Thinking Skills series. Fluency is important because it allows students to easily access information and make connections.

Teachers will have the opportunity to practice fluency exercises, such as brainstorming, and see what factors inhibit fluency and what factors encourage fluency.

In this 1-hour course, teachers will learn:

  • The four basic creative thinking skills
  • Strategies for building fluency
  • Using brainstorming as a fluency technique
