Teachers spend a lot of time thinking about curriculum. In many areas of the world, curriculum is pre-planned, with few opportunities for teacher discretion. In others, it is more flexible. Wherever we teach, there are at least two aspects of curriculum that can be supportive of creativity: the content (what we teach) and the methods (how we teach). Both the content and the methods can affect students’ opportunities for creativity—if we think about “creativitizing” it to be consistent with the Creativity in the Classroom model.
This section of Creativiteach includes:
- Basic principles for creativity supportive of creativity
- Information on creativity and the Common Core State Standards (also relevant to many other curriculum standards)
