Learning about the Future through Language Arts.
Torrance, E. Paul
After a brief historical review of the place of creativity in educational programs, this article argues that we are moving into a new phase in educational thinking about the role of creativity in education. Educational objectives now include many aspects of creative behavior. The use of textbooks, supplementary materials, tests, and training methods which facilitate creativity has increased to the point where students achieve higher creativity scores than did comparable groups nine years ago. We seem to be moving to a stage in which creative problem solving and creative expression will be integrated into the total curriculum rather than just in specific subject areas. One emphasis is on assisting students to see relationships between what they are asked to learn in school and their future careers. Specific examples are given of techniques the language arts teacher can use to help children learn about the future. (AA)
