Hi everyone,
I am on a strategic planning committee for my school system dealing
with curriculum. Currently we are trying to narrow down some of the
aspects we see as ideal for what we would like our school system to be
in the next five years. One of the topics which came up was how to
teach students creative thinking skills. (I of course mentioned that
the arts are already doing this) but the group is looking at the
bigger picture. Right now we are doing research by finding out what
other schools are doing. Do any of you teach in a school where the
main thrust is to produce creative thinking individuals or are you all
fighting the battle of the proficiency test. Its ironic that the main
objectives for all the strategic plans are to have 100% of students
pass the proficiency test on the first time, yet our group wants to
figure out how to increase creativity. If anyone has any insights or
experiences please share.
Thank you in advance
Tina ARndT
