Cultivating Creativity: I Can't Promise You a Rose Garden; and Cultivating Creativity: A Gardener's Guide for the Complete English Teacher.
Haley, Beverly
Creativity, a means of communicating a personal and unique response to life, should be nurtured and cultivated in the classroom. This document discusses the nature of creativity and, using the analogy of a gardener cultivating a garden, outlines nine steps a teacher may take in developing students' creativity--prepare the soil, plant the garden plot, install a sprinkling system, fertilize the soil, cultivate the seedlings, stimulate the plants' growth, provide ways for the plant to develop fully, market the harvest, and preserve the best seeds. A teacher's guide elaborates the nine steps, exploring the purposes of each step, describing skills to be developed, and suggesting activities for students. A brief list of books, magazines, and films is included. (JM)
