Synopsis:

Creativity is crucial in helping students achieve academic and professional success. The authors argue that creativity is not spontaneous or inborn but a process that can be cultivated by utilizing seven virtues that inspire creativity: curiosity, versatility, synthesis, discipline, collaboration, experimentation, and tenacity. Ideal for team study and discussion, the book includes assessment rubrics as well as sample activities and practical guidelines to encourage and facilitate creativity. With The Myth of the Muse, K-12 educators can put creativity at the very center of their curriculum.

Benefits

  • Engage in conversations about how and why creativity is an important quality for approaching future global challenges.
  • Consider the crucial elements of creativity.
  • Challenge misperceptions and preconceptions about creativity.
  • Explore the great works of creative individuals throughout history.
  • Examine practices educators and policymakers should avoid and emulate in nurturing creativity.
  • Reflect creatively using prompts at the end of each chapter.
