These activity pages have been designed to allow and encourage teachers to become totally involved with the teaching of creative thinking skills.
While there is no one accepted way of teaching ‘thinking’, we feel that in being provided with an organized and developmental outline of some of the sub-skills, teachers may more readily internalize these skills, allowing a smoother approach to teaching thinking within the classroom.
While most experts can never agree on a definition, they do agree that ‘thinking’ has a series of sub-skills. For the purpose of teaching them each of these skills can be treated in isolation. They include: fluency, flexibility, originality, elaboration, curiosity, complexity, risk taking and imagination.
Each of these sets contain a teachers' note and four timed word questions relating to one of the skills.
