Description

Teaching isn’t merely transmitting knowledge to students; it’s
also about teaching students to approach learning in engaging and expected
ways.


In Sparking Student
Creativity: Practical Ways to Promote Innovative Thinking and Problem Solving
,
author and researcher Patti Drapeau explores and explains research related to
creativity and its relevance on today’s standards-based, critical
thinking–focused classroom. The book vividly and comprehensively shows



  • How
    creative lessons can meet and extend the expectations of curriculum standards
    such as the Common Core State Standards,

  • How
    to incorporate creativity and assessment into daily classroom practices,

  • How
    to develop a “Creativity Road Map” to guide instruction, and

  • How
    to design lessons that prompt and support creative thinking.


In addition, this book includes 40 “grab and go” ideas that infuse
lessons plans with a spirit of exploration. No matter what year levels or
content areas you teach, Sparking Student
Creativity
will help you to produce creative lessons components that
directly address critical content, target specific standards and require
thoughtful products from students as they grow into independent learners and
become successful adults.


Sparking Student Creativity is the ideal resource for any teacher
looking to encourage innovative thinking and problem solving in their
classroom. The concepts in this book can be applied to any curriculum at the
school, state or national level.
