Developing Imagination and Creativity in Children.
Finkel, Ira
Described are the development, implementation, and evaluation of six 3-hour inservice training sessions designed to help five participating teachers improve imagination and creativity in fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students. Content areas for each session are outlined; activities including brainstorming and role playing are reviewed; and techniques for stimulating creative expression in writing, drama, play, art, and listening are detailed. Pre- and posttest scores on the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking are presented along with observations drawn from classroom visits and teachers' anecdotal records. It is reported that the teachers exhibited an increased awareness of the need for encouraging creative behavior and the students demonstrated increased involvement in the creative aspects of learning. Included in the seven appendixes are the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, and a sample teacher log with photographs of children's creative activities. (CL)
