Education professor publishes book
Using creativity to engage the thinking process
Professor of Education Dr. Marjorie Schiering's most recent publication entitled, Teaching Creative and Critical Thinking: An Interactive Workbook (Rowman & Littlefield, 2016) is the companion to Dr. Schiering's previous publication, Learning and Teaching Creative Cognition: The Interactive Book Report (Rowman & Littlefield, 2015). This new contribution to the field of teaching and learning provides the reader with an extensive overview of topics such as creativity, creative cognition, metacognition, and critical thinking. Along with these theoretical underpinnings, Dr. Schiering offers anecdotes about how they have been implemented in educational settings that include pre-school, elementary, and secondary levels.
What makes this workbook unique is that Dr. Schiering has included the course related projects of teacher candidates, graduates, and faculty from Molloy's Division of Education as examples of the many activities that can be implemented in the creative classroom. Dr. Drew Bogner wrote the foreword of the book. Teachers and teacher candidates will benefit from the multitude of ideas that are sure to bring creativity and critical thinking into a variety of interactive classroom settings.
