Family Background Factors and Originality in Children.
Results from a study of family background variables as related to third graders' performance on non-verbal tests of creativity provide suggestions to teachers concerned with creating a climate conducive to originality. Sex did not differentiate the sample, but children from large, working class families appeared less original. This was also true of children whose working mothers held occupations of higher prestige than their fathers. The dynamics and implications of the findings are explored. (Author)
