Developing a Practical Approach to Creativity and Collaborative Groupwork
Farquhar, Karen
Improving Schools, v7 n3 p287-295 2004
Many theorists espouse the need for creativity to be taught within the school environment, but few exemplars exist as to how this can be achieved. Indeed, this is not a development that can happen overnight; it requires a great deal of focused thought and revision, and classroom-based leaders who are willing to take risks and create a new vision of learning and teaching. The project described in this article is not the only way to achieve a creative learning and teaching environment for children. However, the benefits of the programmes where children take responsibility, work collaboratively and try out their creative ideas have outcomes which foster a more holistic approach to teaching and learning.
