- Publisher's Summary
- Read Creative Teaching for All as an antidote to rapidly growing pressures for quick and easy teacher results, and constant evaluations. Employ creative ideas to resist teaching to the (usually factual) test, and to the many choking rules, standards, cores, and state regulations that strangle motivation and destroy experimentation. Reclaim teacher control of curriculum design and instructional methods across all fields by boldly going 'outside', even off the walls, where teachers have lived happier lives before the invention of rubrics and rules. Become the truly creative teacher to which you have aspired! Highlights of the book: *Explores and expands opportunities for engaging student conversation and ideas *Adds variety and depth to your teaching methods *Hone questioning and critical thinking skills *Move from lower to higher levels *Reinvent instruction at home, work, or in classrooms as places of imagination and enjoyment.
