Habits of the Creative Mind - 75 views

  •  
    We've written a book for teachers who are tired of teaching to the test and want to get access to their students' creative potential. It's a writing book that is actually meant to be read; it's a pedagogy based on how we come to know the world and how we learn to confront the unknown. Available for free 7 day download at Amazon. We're having a book launch party at the MLA16 in Austin, Jan 9, 10AM Bedford Booth. Come talk about creativity and curiosity with us.

Creative Educator - Build Thinking Skills with Informational Text Projects - 38 views

  • This informational text piece lends itself to having students create an associative letter project versus a traditional report. In an associative letter project, students are assigned a letter that they must use to find words representing the text they’ve just read. For example, “R is for the Montgomery Bus Boycott” might lead a student to choose words like race, rights, or Rosa as the focus of a variety of paragraphs that describe the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

      I like this associative activity!
  • By providing students with meaningful, thought-provoking experiences, you can turn informational text study into an exercise in creative and critical thinking!

  • Informational text isn’t going to bring about the death of creativity; rather, creativity depends upon what we ask students to do with the text once they’ve read it. If we ask students to read a non-fiction passage then fill out a worksheet about the passage, we are missing a chance to provide our students with an opportunity to create imaginative, artistic end products demonstrating critical thinking skills hard at work.
