Product Overview

"What do leading scholars and researchers in the field of creativity think about developing creativity in the classroom? This fascinating book offers practical advice and concrete suggestions from many different perspectives and addresses a number of important questions. How does brainstorming in the classroom increase content knowledge? What are `ideal acts' of learning? How do you combine creative and critical thinking in the curriculum? In their excellent synthesis, Beghetto and Kaufman offer twenty key points about nurturing creativity in the classroom. This book is a very valuable addition to the field of creativity and education."---Sandra Russ, Case Western Reserve University

"Nurturing Creativity in the Classroom is an essential addition to the library of anyone involved in education who cares about fostering student creativity. The chapters present the most current views of the foremost scholars in creativity and learning, with clear and readable syntheses of potential problems and pitfalls, contrasted with pointers and good practices to ensure that classrooms are vibrant homes to creativity. Own it, read it, and embrace the twenty key points listed in the Creativity in the Classroom Coda."---Lisa F. Smith, University of Otago, College of Education, New Zealand

"Ronald Beghetto and James Kaufman invited a diverse group of scholars to discuss in writing their most rigorous and cutting-edge ideas on the topic of classroom creativity. The results are refreshingly counterintuitive. The book's recurring themes emphasize that developing student creative thinking requires expert guidance and role modeling in disciplined thought processes, persistence, deep content knowledge, and risk taking within realistic constraints. By way of engaging language rich with examples, these chapters offer evidence-based advice on experiences that elicit creativity on the part of children, including suggestions for optimal timing, conditions, and purposes for these activities."---Rena F. Subotnik, Director, Center for Psychology in Schools and Education, American Psychological Association
