Teaching for Creativity

Hi Everybody,
I like to share the work I did with Grade 08. To make my class a creative classroom, I divided the class into 5 groups of 4 students each. The students were asked to create minor games or a skill development activity under soccer and basketball skills like passing, traping, dribbling and shooting. I also explained to them that the activities should be framed in such a way that it develops the game skills and also could be used in the school play ground. Each group created 3 minor games and they thoroughly enjoyed doing it. In every lesson 0ne group takes charge of a class and teach the minor games to the other students. Do you all think that it's teaching for creativity or creative classroom.

  • Yes, Joel, I think it is a great idea to make kids create their own games. Their output in terms of so many different games and their involvement must tell you right away that your target of teaching for creativity was achieved!
