Add some Pizzazz to your Thinking
Why do I want to encourage creativity?
To enable students to:
Think in different ways
When given a problem to solve, student solves the problem in an unexpected way, or finds a different or counter problem
Think about their work in more than one way
Critique their own work while being able to defend their thinking/work.
Solve problems with what is around them
Table is wobbly, rather than complain student uses something in the classroom to stablize it
How do i encourage creativity?
Foster intrinsic motivation
Give students choice
Listen to students when they come up with alternative assignments/plans
Demonstrate creativity yourself
