Explorations in Creativity.
A Swedish research project dealing with creativity in schools is summarized and discussed. Interest areas include: (1) surveys of opinions about how to promote creativity in schools; (2) classroom observations on creativity-relevant teacher- student interactions; (3) development and try-out of certain Swedish tests for creativity; (4) studies of relations between these tests and various personality variables; and (5) attempts to construct and evaluate potentially creativity-promoting study materials, integrated in the regular school work. One of the main findings was that it is possible to stimulate aspects of creativity by fairly simple means, using specific types of study materials. An annotated bibliography of Swedish studies of creativity is included. (Author/MV)
