Your students can enhance their creative problem-solving and divergent thinking abilities. In this unit, they’ll learn to tap into their own unique brand of creative thinking and cultivate strategies to help them be more creative:

Through this 10-lesson unit, students will experiment with approaches that help them meet the following goals:

  1. I can define creativity and its relevance to my life.
  2. I have strategies for sparking my imagination when I get stuck.
  3. I can identify and apply the four stages of creativity.
  4. I experiment with practices to enhance divergent thinking.
  5. I can see familiar things in new and interesting ways.
  6. I know how to examine problems from different perspectives.
  7. I can use warm-ups to prime my brain to think creatively.
  8. I know how to use the 7 mental states of creativity to innovate.
  9. I can generate creative solutions to problems I care about.
  10. I know how to share and talk about my creative output.
These lessons are designed to be no-prep or minimal prep. You don’t have to master any of these skills yourself before introducing them to students, as you’ll be learning alongside each other. Each unit has:
  • A teacher’s guide (1 page per lesson): This tells you how to prepare and gives you the key ideas taught in the lesson.
  • An editable slideshow presentation to guide you and your students through each lesson: Teaching the concepts and introducing activities to students is super simple: just follow the prompts on each slide in PowerPoint! 131 slides are included, all with professionally designed graphics. All video clips are embedded in the slides so you can play them offline and won’t have problems with website blockers.
  • A 10-page student self-reflection journal in both printable and typable formats: The length of the journal depends on the unit, but the format is designed to minimize printing and paper use with no filler, fluff, or half blank pages. You can also assign the journal to students in your LMS (such as Google Classroom) and keep everything digital.
