Is Creativity in the Eye of the Beholder?
Strasheim, Lorraine A.
This address examines the personal experiences and attitudes of a language teacher during the 1960's, exploring the then commonly held notions of "creativity" with a view toward stimulating professional reappraisal of the term and its pedagogical implications. The author suggests that the notion of the teacher "guiding creativity" must yield to a "creativity unleashed" before the student will play a meaningful, participatory role in the creative process. Several recommendations are offered which are intended to facilitate the achievement of creativity in the classroom. (RL)
