Teaching for Creativity through Fashion Design
MacDonald, Nora M.; Bigelow, Susan
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v102 n2 p48-53 2010
In today's high technology, globally interdependent world, we must educate students to achieve to their highest capacity. The goal of this middle school fashion design project was to develop a classroom environment that promoted teaching for creativity. We examined the following questions. What was the students' perception of their (a) participation in the creative process and (b) self-confidence in the ability to design creative fashion products? Data revealed students benefitted from participation in the creative process and enhanced their self-confidence in the ability to create a fashion item. Findings were limited to students from one middle school and one teacher. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
