Dear Yvette

( I am a student of Bachelor of Education at Griffith University in
Australia. I have a presentation to give on the topic "Teaching
Creativity in the Classroom". This topic is aimed at students in g

ades four to seven).

You might try the Australian Institute of Art Education journal in
your library.
and look at some of the conference material from this organization
The earlier work of Edward De Bono is children oriented. The
Victorian Curriculum document "Artmaps... 1986" has some good ideas
too. Why not go and find the Art Education lecturers in your
university and talk to them. Some of your Science Education people
too should be able to help you.
I don't know if you can "teach" creativity but you can make people
aware of their creative potential. It is positive attitudes towards ideas
which need to be encouraged and tolerance to new or unusual ideas
which need to be fostered.
Bob Greaves.
