It is a site devoted to teaching for creativity–and teaching creatively. It is a site about supporting students’ creativity in specific creative activities, but also in the day-to-day teaching of math, language arts, science, and all the rest. It is a place for people who care about things like:
- How do I help my students think more flexibly?
- What kinds of assessment will help best support creative thinking?
- How do I help students who are afraid to try anything new?
- Do I have to be creative myself in order to help my students?
- What does creativity look like when I’m teaching science or history or French?
In general, Creativiteach is published twice a week. The first post, typically Monday morning, is always a specific lesson idea or teaching resource. The second posting (typically Thursday) is sometimes a lesson idea, sometimes a more reflective piece around issues related to creativity and teaching. At least once a month–and more often in the summer–it features “Family Fun” activities for supporting creativity with young people at home.
This site is in its infancy, but we can build a community here. Come to the blog, and let’s talk.
Or maybe you’d like to be a bigger piece of the story. Are you interested in being a guest Creativiteach blogger? Do you have a lesson idea you’d like to share, and help build a collection? If so, I’d love to hear from you.
