Intention - Critical Creativity in the Classroom

Includes foreword by Howard Rheingold, a Creativity Credo and tips for “Crushing it with Creativity”…

How might we choreograph a short story, remix a political party, sketchnote an equation, costume a scientific phenomenon, or hashtag a nutrition plan? Veteran classroom educators, Amy Burvall and Dan Ryder, believe intentional acts of creative expression enables deeper learning, turning the creative spirit into a force for authentic understanding.

Intention: Critical Creativity in the Classroom provides a catalog of field-tested, student-centered activities, lessons and experiences ready for integration into any classroom.  Each item in the catalog features a pathway for facilitating the thinking and making, an inventory of critical thinking skills developed during the experience, multiple suggestions for content area integration, and ideas for further enrichment and exploration.
Turn the pages with an open mind and nagging curiosity; close the cover with a concrete plan and collection of strategies for integrating innovative imagination into your daily classroom practice.
