Kindling the Creative Spark.
Weaver, Richard L., II
Encouraging creativity is an important aspect of communication instruction. Qualities to be encouraged include sensitivity, flexibility, originality, imagination, perception, and the ability to analyze. A teacher can do this by creating the proper atmosphere, generating ideas, focusing on content, and applying content. Creativity can be evaluated with written or oral comments of praise, by using a dual grading system, or by some other method; however, evaluation must be seen by students as an integral part of all efforts and it must be done consistently if it is to be seen as important.
