It takes more than just telling kids to be creative
Modeling my best NASA flight controller look for my 7th graders.
That's what I discovered in my first decade of teaching. When I just told my students, "This is your chance to be creative!" I would wind up with 10% of the students doing something truly creative, and 90% being imitations.
Most teachers I talk to have the same problem: Many students just copy the example. They don't always do it out of laziness, just out of an inability to think of anything more creative.
That's because if you want your students to be more creative, you have to teach them how.
Just "letting them" be creative isn't going to be enough.
And how to make your students be creative is something no one ever taught me in college.
But now, I've put together a complete resources and guidebook to teaching creativity in the classroom! Learn how to inspire the most creativity out of your students, to create richer, deeper, and more relevant learning.
