Creativity and Pre-Service Teacher Education: What You See is What You Get
Keywords:Teacher Education, Creativity, Modeling
This essay discusses creativity in the classroom, constraints and the lack of creativity modeling in undergraduate teacher education programs, and some simple changes that can be made. This lack of models and modeling of creativity in the teacher education classrooms leads to a lack of creativity in teaching, activity design, tasks, and assessments. Issues related to lack of creativity in the education system are discussed from the student, faculty, state, and government levels.
