IDEA INVENTORY IN TEACHING THE CREATIVE.
FIVE PRINCIPLES FOR ENCOURAGING CREATIVE THINKING ARE TO TREAT QUESTIONS WITH RESPECT, TO TREAT IMAGINATIVE IDEAS WITH RESPECT, TO SHOW PUPILS THAT THEIR IDEAS HAVE VALUE, TO PERMIT PUPILS OCCASIONALLY TO DO SOMETHING FOR FUN OR PRACTICE WITHOUT THREAT OF EVALUATION, AND TO TIE IN EVALUATION WITH CAUSE AND CONSEQUENCES. DR. E. PAUL TORRANCE'S "TEN WAYS TO HELPING YOUNG CHILDREN GIFTED IN CREATIVE WRITING AND SPEECH" SUGGESTS THAT THE TEACHER SHOULD PROVIDE MATERIALS WHICH DEVELOP IMAGINATION, ENCOURAGE CHILDREN TO RECORD THEIR IDEAS, ACCEPT THE CHILD'S NATURAL TENDENCY TO TAKE A DIFFERENT LOOK, AND LOVE THEM AND LET THEM KNOW IT. IN GRADES 7 TO 12, TEACHERS SHOULD ATTEMPT TO ENRICH THE STUDENT'S SENSITIVITY TO THE WORLD ABOUT HIM AND TO OTHER PEOPLE, HAVE THE STUDENT READ WELL AND WIDELY, AND PROVOKE HIM TO LEARN BY THE USE OF LEADING QUESTIONS.
