Teaching for Creativity with Young Children: Looking and Listening Closely Through Documentation


Event Description

Research and experience have shown that strong creative thinking skills are the basis of future success, in academics and beyond. How do we model, foster and champion creativity in our classrooms? How can thoughtful documentation lead to more creative thinking? And what can we do as teachers to be better observers and listeners? Participants in this session will explore these questions and more, through hands-on activities, thinking routines and facilitated conversation

(note: this session is part of the Teaching for Creativity Series. Each session features a mix of big picture thinking and practical application. Participants do not need to have taken previous sessions to take part in this one.)
