Teaching creativity step 2

Watch Jonah discuss ideas for teaching, assessing, and reinforcing creativity step 2 from the Skills Builder framework.

The previous sections looked at how the core skills could be broken down into teachable chunks or steps. You also saw how one of these steps could be taught, using the example of teamwork step 1. This session is about really putting that into action by considering how to teach a step of one of the skills.

In this section, you’ll learn how you can teach a step of a core skill to your students, how you can practise and assess a step of a skill and what you might need to adapt to suit your students.

In the next activities, we’ll look at specific steps from two different skill areas in the Skills Builder framework. These are creativity step 2 and problem solving step 3. You’ll need to consider how you would teach and assess at least one of these steps.

Firstly, we will consider some general ideas for teaching creativity step 2. Read the information about the step before watching the video.

Now watch Jonah introduce some ideas for teaching the step. As you listen, make a note of each of the ideas he mentions. Think about the following questions as you watch:

  • Which ideas do you think would work best with your students?

  • How might you adapt the ideas to suit your classroom context?
