about

Creativity is crucial in helping students achieve academic and professional success. The authors argue that creativity is not spontaneous or inborn but a process that can be cultivated by utilizing seven “virtues” that inspire creativity: curiosity, versatility, synthesis, discipline, collaboration, experimentation, and tenacity. Ideal for team study and discussion, the book includes assessment rubrics as well as sample activities and practical guidelines to encourage and facilitate creativity. With The Myth of the Muse, K–12 educators can put creativity at the very center of their curriculum.
