A Creative Approach in Teaching Undergraduates.
Goetz, Elizabeth M.
The course selected for the creative approach was History and Philosophy of Early Childhood Education, an offering in the Department of Human Development. The subjects were 58 undergraduates in 3 classes. The creative approach required innovative student team presentations on seven early childhood education programs, and offered the choice of an individual creative alternative presentation to the term paper. Possibilities for originality were theme presentations, costumes, song, dance, film, poetry, and art. Questionnaire data favored the creative approach in terms of interest, learning, challenge, and personal satisfaction, even though it took more preparation time. Also, significantly more students selected the individual alternatives over the term papers. The questionnaire for evaluation of the creative approach is attached. (Author/JD)
