Developing Creativity in the Classroom applies the most current theory and research on creativity to support the design of teaching and learning. Creative thinking and problem solving are at the heart of learning and application as students prepare for innovation-driven careers. This text debunks myths about creativity and teaching and, instead, illustrates productive conceptions of creative thinking and innovation, including a constructivist learning approach in which creative thinking enhances and strengthens conceptual understanding of the curriculum. Through models of teaching that support creativity and problem solving, this book extends the idea of a creative pedagogy to the four core curriculum domains. Developing Creativity in the Classroom focuses on explanations and examples of how creative thinking and deep learning merge to support engaging learning environments, rising to the challenge of developing 21st-century competencies.

Review by: Bobbi Hansen, Teachers College Record - June 6, 2019
As an educator who has had the privilege of teaching graduate-level courses on creativity, I know that this text will remain a trusted resource for me going forward. I appreciate how the authors not only interpret major theories but also seamlessly facilitate teachers’ practical understanding of creativity while also addressing their possible hesitations regarding how to integrate creativity into their daily classroom routines. I look forward to contemplating the ideas presented in this text as they advance my own instructional practices teaching for creativity.

Developing Creativity in the Classroom provides teachers with practical classroom strategies built upon current research and empirical evidence in the field of creativity. [It] not only transforms the classroom but also transforms the minds and practices of both teachers and students alike.
