Resume #4 on Creative Over Flow

This article is about How to Enhance Creativity in School Children. I personally found this site is interesting because it helps people who are struggling and worrying about their children’s creativity and character building. The author said that being creative is about finding innovative ways to solve problems, generating new ideas and finding ways to make things better to name a few. Research has shown that enhancing student creativity may offer benefits academically, developmentally and emotionally. This site also offer very good advices for teachers to add several new interesting activities to build their student’s creativity.

The first activity that can be done is a “Word Game. Word games are a great way to encourage creative thinking because it allows children to make connections and establish relationships between different words.” The second one is a “Drawing Game. Certain types of drawing games can help students build on existing concepts, knowledge and ideas, another key aspect of creativity.” The last one is “Visual Thinking Game. Games that employ the use of visual thinking are great because they encourage visualization and the use of imagination (which are the two important aspects of thinking creatively).”

Teachers also can ask their students certain types of questions during class, it can help their students to develop their imaginations on things based on the topics. The author also teach the teachers that “encouraging creativity in students will not only serve them well while they are in school, it will help them develop skills that will serve them well as adults. Creativity is not just about being good at drawing or some other creative art form.”.
