Creative Thinking for 21st Century Composing Practices: Creativity Pedagogies across Disciplines
Lee, Sohui; Carpenter, Russell
Across the Disciplines, v12 n4 Dec 2015
In this article, the authors explore the corpus of literature on creative thinking and applied creativity in higher education to help composition teacher-scholars and writing center practitioners improve the application of creativity in written, visual, and multimodal composing practices. From studies of creative thinking investigated across disciplines, the authors draw four principles commonly articulated in creativity scholarship, present stages of creative thinking in the composition process and, finally, offer suggestions for applied creativity in composition classrooms and writing centers.
