Editorial Reviews

¿I¿ve been reading and teaching with Creativity in the Classroom since its 1st edition, and I¿m pleased to see that the 5th edition has retained the teacher-friendly tone of its predecessors, while incorporating all the latest research and emerging perspectives on creative teaching and learning. Starko continues to provide one of the best entry-level creativity texts on the market today.¿¿Dr. Michael S. Matthews, University of North Carolina at Charlotte ¿Students in my university creativity course have appreciated the former editions of Creativity in the Classroom as it explains the theories underlying creativity as well as ways for teachers to implement those principles in the classroom.  In this era of standardized curriculum and assessments it is vital for teachers to understand how to incorporate creative teaching and learning strategies and to recognize, value, and nurture the creativity of their students.  This 5th edition includes expanded sections on technology, assessment for creativity, addressing the common core standards and ways to include students with special needs. ¿¿Stuart N. Omdal, Ph.D., University of Northern Colorado
