Organic Creativity in the Classroom
Teaching to Intuition in Academics and the Arts
Creativity can be taught and nurtured, and we can build classrooms in which creativity thrives. This philosophy acts as a central thesis in Organic creativity in the classroom, edited by award-winning author Jane Piirto, PhD.
This innovative collection of essays explores approaches to teaching creativity from the perspectives of experienced educators and artists. The twenty-three authors have taught for more than five hundred years combined, and in this book they share teaching stories and helpful strategies that can be used to encourage students to become more creative within specific domains.
The authors include master teachers, curriculum theorists, holistic educators and award-winning practitioners of writing, mathematics, social science, literature, foreign language, theatre, song writing, dance, music, arts education, educational psychology, gifted education, school counselling and school administration, among other domains, who incorporate creativity and intuition into their classrooms. In this readable and lively book, they share their personal stories and practical advice for infusing creativity into the lives of students.
