Creative Imagination and What We Can Do to Stimulate It.
Khatena, Joe
Suggested are ways to stimulate imagination, creativity, and imagery in children. Recommended for developing imagination are the thinking strategies of breaking away from the usual and commonplace, restructuring familiar elements, and synthesizing elements. Discussed are the production of creative analogies (such as personal, direct, symbolic, and fantasy analogies). The use of figures of speech (such as simile, metaphor, and personification) is seen to foster imagery. Implications of imagery research and creative thinking strategies for teachers are noted. (DB)
