Being Creative and Innovative

This year our school has been focusing on the 4 C's. For the next two months we will focus on creativity and innovation. As with our previous post on Critical Thinking we want to share with our students what being creative looks like and emphasize that it is a skill that develops with practice.

There is a helpful article that discusses creating a classroom environment that fosters creativity,  30 Ways to Promote Creativity in the Classroom. It's more geared to what teachers can do, but clarifies what creativity looks like in the classroom and thus helps us (the teachers) encourage and create opportunities for our students to be creative.

We put together a poster you can share with your students. Click on the pic to download. Let us know what you think- we love comments!
