How do we teach students not only to think outside the box, but not even worry about the box? Using the SCAMPER strategy, teachers can help students learn to apply seven different thinking techniques to spark creativity and enhance problem solving skills. In Creativity x 4 – SCAMPER, Carolyn Coil discusses how the SCAMPER strategy can strengthen creative thinking in students’ writing, discussions, projects, and performances.
This course covers:
- Applying the SCAMPER strategy to today’s standards and content
- A practice activity
- A sample SCAMPER lesson plan format

I liked this class! Quick and efficient literacy. I’m taking away a lot of ideas to use with my students when we return to school. Even for watching a video presentation, the speaker was engaging. Glad I signed up to take this course.
