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 weekly. It includes information on creativity research, resources for classroom use and, more recently, personal reflections on creativity and the creative process. The site has been online, more or less continuously, since 2012, so if you are looking for a particular creativity topic or subject area, be sure to make use of the search bar and/or the categories that will help you find content that is interesting to you.
Over the years, I’ve hoped to build a community here. We’ve never grown very big, but that’s OK. I love the comments when they appear. 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.
