It’s one thing to say “Be creative!” But what if our students do not have the basic skills necessary to use creative thinking to solve problems and generate ideas? The good news is, it is possible to actually teach students how to think creatively — not just to set a creative environment in the classroom, but to actually teach students the mental skills of creativity! In “Infusing Creativity and Creative Thinking Skills in the Classroom – Flexibility and Elaboration”, Bob Iseminger shares four basic creative thinking skills that can be taught to students, focusing on two of the skills: flexibility and elaboration. These activities can be incorporated across subject areas and grade levels. Get ready to see students’ creative thinking grow!

Description

Creative thinking skills are hampered by so many aspects of our modern society, including less creative playtime for young children and too much screen time for all of our students. Yet creative thinking is one of the top skills needed for jobs in the 21st century! The good news is that creative thinking skills can be taught if we understand the basics of creative thought. 
In “Infusing Creativity and Creative Thinking Skills in the Classroom – Flexibility and Elaboration”, Bob Iseminger equips teachers with a host of activities that teach students two of the four basic creative thinking skills: flexibility and elaboration. Not only will teachers be able to teach creative skills, they will be inspired to think creatively about how these skills can be incorporated into many lesson plans.

In this 1-hour course, teachers will learn:

  • The four basic creative thinking skills
  • Strategies for building flexibility and elaboration
  • Classroom activities that can be used across grade levels and subject areas
