summary
Education and the Creative Potential was first published in 1963. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.Modern School Practices Series, Number 5How can we identify creative children? What makes them different from other youngsters, and what happens to them in today’s schools? How can we improve our schools to make the most of our creative potential? Dr. Torrance, a leading educational psychologist, discussed such challenging questions and proposes challenges in the schools which will give children a better chance to learn and think creatively. He summarizes much of what is known about the conditions which nurture or inhibit creative growth and reports on a series of original, exploratory studies concerned with the problems of testing creative ability or potentiality and the influence of various factors on the development of creativity.This book is recommended by the National Council of Teachers of English as a standard reference for high school English classrooms and departments.
