Motor Creativity of Preschool Deaf Children.
Lubin, Ellen
This investigation seeks to provide information on the motor creativity of preschool deaf children. A play apparatus known as the London Trestle Tree Apparatus was used. Data were collected on motor creativity using the Torrance Test of Thinking Creatively in Action and Movement. The Lubin Motor Creativity Testing Protocol was used to test motor fluency and originality. Findings indicated that children exposed to twenty days of guided movement exploration on the London Trestle Tree improved significantly over a control group in motor creativity as measured by the Torrance Test. Motor creativity as measured by the Lubin Motor Creativity Testing Protocol showed no significant increase over the control group. The implications for teaching methodology to be used with preschool deaf children are discussed, and the different results obtained from the two testing methods used are analyzed. (JD)
