Freedom and Play in Creativity Instruction.
Hobson, Sandra K.; Feldhusen, John F.
This study examines the roles of freedom and play in creativity instruction. A trial operation of a creativity training program is described including a workshop with 18 sixth- and eighth-grade students. The program emphasizes three basic concepts: freedom, playfulness and warm interpersonal relationships. Group activities and dramatic techniques are used in the program. Implications are that substantial freedom and play increase the effectiveness of instructional materials and techniques. Also, understanding the creative thinking processes could be enhanced by further research in this area. (Author/MPJ)
