CREATIVITY AND HIGH SCHOOL CLIMATE.
WALKER, WILLIAM J.
THIS PROJECT WAS DESIGNED TO STUDY THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A HIGHLY CREATIVE SCHOOL AS OPPOSED TO A TRADITIONAL SCHOOL. FOUR HIGH SCHOOLS OF COMPARABLE SOCIOECONOMIC AND STUDENT ABILITY LEVEL WERE INVOLVED. TWO WERE JUDGED TO BE OF THE HIGHLY CREATIVE TYPE. THE STUDENTS WERE GIVEN VARIOUS TESTS, AND CLASSES WERE OBSERVED. THE FINDINGS SHOWED THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS OF CREATIVE SCHOOLS--(1) HIGH ASPIRATION LEVEL AND INTELLECTUAL CLIMATE, (2) LESS AUTHORITARIAN, BUT NOT LESS RATIONAL, TEACHER DIRECTION, AND (3) STIMULATING AND ORIGINAL CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR ON THE PART OF THE TEACHERS. SUGGESTED AIMS FOR AN EXTENSION OF THE PRESENT STUDY INCLUDE PROJECTS FOR COMPARISON OF CREATIVE STUDENT PRODUCTIVITY AS WELL AS FURTHER INVESTIGATION INTO THE NATURE OF CREATIVITY AND OF THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF CREATIVITY.
