Creative Representation. High/Scope Preschool Key Experiences.
Brickman, Nancy A.
Recognizing the role of creative representation experiences in early childhood in developing a foundation for adult thinking skills, this booklet and accompanying videotape present six key experiences in creative representation in the High Scope Model: (1) recognizing objects by sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell; (2) imitating actions and sounds; (3) relating models, pictures, and photographs to real places and things; (4) pretending and role playing; (5) making models out of clay, blocks, and other materials; and (6) drawing and painting. For each of the key experience areas, the booklet discusses the thinking processes involved, provides examples of such experiences, and discusses how adults can support these experiences in early childhood settings. The booklet concludes with a checklist for encouraging creative representation and a suggested materials list. (KB)
