Nurturing Creativity in the Classroom Hardback
Edited by Ronald A. (University of Connecticut) Beghetto, James C. (University of Connecticut) Kaufman
Part of the Current Perspectives in Social and Behavioral Sciences series
As interest in creativity explodes, it has become more complicated to decide how to best nurture creativity in our schools.
There are the controversial Common Core Standards in many states.
Meanwhile, the classroom has become increasingly digital; it is easier to access information, communicate ideas, and learn from people across the world.
Many countries now include cultivating creativity as a national educational policy recommendation, yet there is still debate over best practices.
Indeed, many well-intentioned educators may institute programs that may not reach the desired outcome.
The notion that schools 'kill creativity' has become a widespread social meme.
We view such beliefs as both hyperbolic and problematic: they allow us to recognize there is a problem but not solve it.
In this book, a wide array of international experts addresses these issues, discussing theories and research that focus on how to nurture creativity in K-12 and college-level classrooms.
