Exploring Creativity - by John A. Eisenberg


Artistic Mentoring in the classroom

Franklin D. Roosevelt: "Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort."

Being a creative teacher: we can give this energy to our students. And they give energy in return.

Being a creative teachers is different than teaching for creativity.

Being an artist teacher vs a teaching artist.

"Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them." Baldwin, James

We have tremendous opportunities to help students, to provide a safe environment. If we wish to find the hidden spark of genius we must find it in ourselves.

The future: "the illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn."--Alvin Toffler.

Yaroslav Senyshyn
"Perspectives on Performance and Anxiety and Their Implications for Creative Teaching"
Canadian Journal of Education 24 no1 30-41 Winter 1999
(Click HERE to search the eJournal database at SFU. You will need to search for the journal title, and then find the year of publication, and then view/download the article.)
"Rollo May, for instance, expresses the optimistic belief (after Kierkegaard) that ... anxiety supplies essential creative energy ... and that, instead of running away from anxiety, it is wisest to "move through it," achieving a measure of self realization in the process."
We read up to: "How is it that when we cannot deal with our anxiety, we "cope" with despair as a form of self-deception that leads to a loss of genuine humanness?"
