Creativity, Curiosity and Critical Thinking Courses
This introductory course explores the four Torrance traits of creativity with an eye towards their application in the classroom. What are the traits? What do they look like in real classrooms? Can creativity be assessed? Educators completing this course will be able to infuse their classrooms with appropriate, effective creative techniques and assess student creativity fairly.
How can we plan lessons that cross content areas, connecting otherwise isolated topics? In this course, you’ll discover Universal Themes, highly-abstract, one-word topics that naturally connect any content. You’ll learn how to introduce a theme, plan lessons around them, and create differentiated student tasks that highlight these abstract concepts.
