How Children Can Be Creative. Bulletin, 1954, No. 12

This bulletin has been prepared to help teachers and parents understand the contribution of creative expression in the all-around development of children. In order to achieve balance among the various learning activities, a school program needs to give appropriate emphasis to the creative arts. Because all the arts are closely related, a broader, sounder learning experience can be provided when each of the arts can supplement the others. Many illustrations are offered in this bulletin to show how children and teachers living and working together in elementary school classrooms can create songs, poems, stories, rhythms, dances, pictures, handicrafts, and other art forms. This bulletin is one in a series based upon the publication, "The Place of Subjects in the Curriculum," Office of Education Bulletin 1949, No. 12. These publications are designed to discuss in more detail problems of teaching in some of the subject areas; and to analyze situations and illustrate ways in which teachers can help children do a better job of living and working together. This bulletin is organized around questions which may arise in making opportunities for creative expression available to children. A bibliography is included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
