About the Authors
  • As interest in creativity explodes, it has become more complicated to decide how to best nurture creativity in our schools. There are the controversial Common Core Standards in many states. Meanwhile, the classroom has become increasingly digital; it is easier to access information, communicate ideas, and learn from people across the world. Many countries now include cultivating creativity as a national educational policy recommendation, yet there is still debate over best practices. Indeed, many well-intentioned educators may institute programs that may not reach the desired outcome. The notion that schools 'kill creativity' has become a widespread social meme. We view such beliefs as both hyperbolic and problematic: they allow us to recognize there is a problem but not solve it. In this book, a wide array of international experts addresses these issues, discussing theories and research that focus on how to nurture creativity in K-12 and college-level classrooms.

    • Includes new or updated essays from some of the top people in the world in this field, from such legends as Robert J. Sternberg and Joseph Renzulli to established scholars and rising stars
    • Includes applied, practical, and theoretical approaches
    • For this topic, there are very few books that offer many different expert perspectives; many chapter authors have their own volumes, and this book gathers all of these voices together

    'As a second edition, Nurturing Creativity in the Classroom lays out an appealing update to the possibilities for enhancing creativity in education today by translating research findings into convincing tools for all educators … The book wrestles creativity away from its purely artistic connotation by providing expanded definitions and easily transferable skill sets for educators to embrace … The message relayed is that creativity is no longer shrouded in mystery; instead, it is available to and expected of all.' Nadine M. Kalin and Kate Wurtzel, Teachers College Record
