The Creative Classroom Workbook: Education, Neurobiology, and the Developing Imagination

Synthesising data from a number of fields, including developmental neurobiology, creative therapy and play therapy, this book provides educators, administrators and policymakers with a road map to teaching students to think fluidly. These creative skills are crucial to functioning effectively in an increasingly complex world. An accompanying workbook for teachers (sold separately) is full of exercises and skill-building sets for students, promoting essentially creative tasks: the capacity for adaptability to change, how to recognise and question assumptions, how to tolerate and understand different points of view, how to work as part of a group toward a common goal, and how to learn from experience and mistakes.
