Creative Development: Encouraging the Spirit of Wonder and Magic.
Maxim, George W.
This paper broadly summarizes research conclusions on the following aspects of creativity: characteristics of the creative behavior of preschool children; specific thinking abilities that account for differences in the degree of creativity from one person to another (fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration); general conditions under which creativity seems to flourish in the schools; and ideas for facilitating the child's creative thinking through teacher behavior and planning for classroom activities.
