Creativity and Innovation: Theory, Research, and Practice by Jonathan Plucker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a collection of essays and research on our understanding of creativity written at a scholarly level. Each chapter has key points for the reader to remember, which is helpful and a lot less dry than just researching and reading. There is a wealth of evidence indicating the lack of creativity in the classroom is having a detrimental effect on students and teachers. Change needs to happen in our education system, a change that encourages creative thinking. This book contains evidence that backs up the importance of creativity and innovation, in the classroom and beyond. I received an ARC through Library Thing in exchange for an honest review.
