Recognizing, Accepting, and Nurturing Creativity in Children.
McCormack, Alan J.
This report describes the use of "invention workshops" in the elementary science program to stimulate the creative potential of children and to involve the child in divergent thought proceses. The workshops begin with an interest-getting experience focusing attention on a project open to unlimited creative interpretation; the most effective devices have been cartoons. Suggestions are given for the "Inventor's Kits" using quite simple and ordinary things with which students transform ideas into tangible objects of the Rube Goldberg type. It is the writer's feeling that both teachers and pupils became sensitized to the existence, value, and sheer thrill of creative thought. (Author/EB)
