The Creativity Crusade
Shade, Rick; Shade, Patti Garrett
Parenting for High Potential, v5 n1 p22-23 Fall 2015
Creativity has and always will be at the heart of American culture. It is evidenced in our daily lives thanks to the contributions of society's most revered icons. For decades, creativity has languished in the educational system. Creativity is not the norm in schools, and seems to only survive in classrooms or enrichment programs when highly creative students find mentors and/or like-minded teachers. Creativity is a developmental skill that can be integrated into all teaching and learning. This article discusses how parents can help their child nurture and protect their creativity since schools primarily focus on teaching content.
