Our Students Will Be:
In a continually changing world creativity enables students to perceive situations from multiple perspectives, create unknown systems, try new skills, and seek new solutions to real and relevant problems. Students will experience regular opportunities to explore their own ideas and assets, cultivate their planning skills, share ideas through creative expression, and develop innovative ideas and processes.
Real World Connection
Creativity involves cognitive processes that transform one’s understanding of, or relationship to, the world. What is the most important skill for the workplace in 2020? Complex problem solving, a skill enhanced by effective creative thinking.
How it Looks in the Classroom
Through the establishment of classroom conditions which allow creativity to thrive, students will be afforded time, space, and occasion to exercise creativity. Students will have opportunities to think creatively, collaborate creatively with others, and generate, explore, test, refine, implement,
and express ideas. Students will practice persistence through failure.
