Encouraging Creative Potential: A Total Creativity Program for Individualizing and Humanizing the Learning Process. Volume Two.
Williams, Frank E.
This volume of the Total Creativity Program outlines the rationale for teaching the thinking-feeling processes on which the program is based. It also suggests ways of implementing the program in the classroom. Although the program can be implemented by individual teachers, pilot studies found that a group training program was often helpful in setting up schoolwide effort. Both means of implementation are described here. As a prelude to the model on which this creativity program is based, several taxonomies of intellectual or affective growth, like Piaget's, Bloom's, Krathwohl's, and Guilford's, are described. The Cognitive-Affective Interaction (CAI) model on which this program is based has three dimensions: 1) subject matter content; 2) 18 teacher strategies, like provocative questions and tolerance for ambiguity; and 3) eight pupil behaviors, divided into cognitive and affective processes. A large section of the book describes methods for implementing the program in various subject areas using various teacher strategies. (JK)
