Creativity & Divergent Thinking

Creativity: the ability to bring new ideas to life, to see something old from a unique perspective, or to solve a problem in ways most others wouldn't think of

*May creative people are driven to create. It's as vital to them as BREATHING! We don't want to take children's creativity away from them! Creativity brings richness to life - brings out humor and smiles while listening to creative explanations.

Our world THRIVES on creativity!

What is the state of creativity at WALKER?*Is it only occuring in Music & Art?*Are young scientists exploring new theories?*In math, are students encourages to find creative solutions? Be open minded about creative thinkers who find the answer to a problem in new & unique ways. Children are alot more capable than we give them credit for.

Creativity is the desire & the ability to produce new ideas & products. Divergent thinking makes it all possible!

Divergent thinking is not often a conscious act - it is just how certain brains work.

Divergent thinkers are non-conformists who prefer their own way over the typical way. They see many possibilities; whereas convergent thinkers only see one right answer.

Divergent kids are sometimes the most challenging. Decide which rules are important & let the other stuff go. So much about gifted children is outside the box. They need the sdupport of teachers to recognize creativty & divergent thinkers so they don't feel like "outcasts". Gifted teachers have the ability to make all students feel special because they recognize it as true.
