Show your students a powerful method for thinking creatively and critically about both the academic and personal challenges they face. This book acts as a practical introduction to the Creative Problem Solving process for teachers at any grade level. Designed specifically for teachers with little or no background in CPS, each step in the process is discussed in detail and is fully illustrated with ready-to-use, reproducible activities for both elementary and secondary classrooms. Creative Problem Solving is a process that allows people to apply both creative and critical thinking to find solutions to everyday problems. CPS can eliminate the tendency to approach problems in a haphazard manner and, consequently, prevents surprises and/or disappointment with the solution. Often, teachers find it difficult to infuse thinking skills and processes into the content they teach. "Creative Problem Solving in the Classroom" offers practical advice for teachers wanting to help students master the content of their subject area and introduce the Creative Problem Solving process, including fun, creative teaching strategies. "Creative Problem Solving in the Classroom" offers innovative ways to teach problem-solving skills alongside content. Your students will use simulations, role-play, scientific surveys, multisource research, and other activities as they learn this powerful problem-solving process.
