Fostering Creativity in Handicapped Children.
Of the nine long range goals of adapted physical education, creative thinking and moving has received the least attention. However, this goal may be more important than others in helping handicapped children self-actualize through sports, dance, and aquatics. This paper defines behaviors in the creative process and describes several assessment approaches, including: (1) Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking; (2) Wyrick Test of Motor Creativity; (3) Torrance Tests of Thinking Creatively in Action and Movement; (4) TWU Motor Creativity Rating Scale; and (5) Brennan Test of Creative Motor Performance. Also reviewed is current literature on such topics as games analysis intervention theory, shared decision making in physical education, teacher behaviors which optimize student-teacher interactions, and modeling of creative behaviors. A 39 citation reference list on motor creativity is included. (Author/CB)
