Teacher's Edition, Teaching Children How to think; Synthesis, Interpretation and Evaluation of Research and Development on Creative Problem Solving.
Feldhusen, John F.; And Others
This publication was designed to help teachers learn about promising materials, methods, and techniques for teaching creative thinking and problem solving to disadvantaged elementary school children. Two kinds of reviews of published teaching materials for specific grade levels and subject areas are included: (1) reviews of commercially published materials dealing with creativity and problem solving and (2) reviews of books that can be used, as teaching aids and/or stimulus materials. In addition, information about teaching methods which can be adapted by the teacher to fit any grade level and subject area is presented. Detailed tasks, exercises, and procedures for teaching creativity and problem solving in the classroom are included. Most of the materials reviewed in this publication will work well in open and individualized classrooms; however, teachers who maintain a more traditional classroom organization will find that many of the materials and methods can be adapted to meet their needs.
