In recent years, an intense focus on standardized testing has resulted in less emphasis on teaching students how to think critically and creatively during the learning process. It’s time to change that and better prepare students to meet today’s challenges and opportunities. In the course “Strategies for Fostering Creativity,” Bob Iseminger provides teachers with a series of activities to help stimulate greater creativity in the classroom.

These strategies include:

  • Pass the Word
  • Paired Association
  • Key Word Map
  • Vocab Master
  • Math Roulette
  • Two-Headed Experts
