The Creative Teacher

That’s when Sister finally sat down and cried. She cried for Pramod and for all his friends who would never see him again.

Thus a creative teacher is just not an information provider but a person who stimulates his students to greater success by living the values that he/she preaches. A creative teacher has no option but to be a role model.

Creative teaching suggests a very different vision—teachers are knowledgeable and expert professionals and are granted creative autonomy to improvise in their classrooms. People generally choose to become teachers with this vision in mind. Creative teaching results in deeper understanding among learners, a form of learning that is more difficult to quantitatively assess; yet, close empirical studies of the discourse processes of collaboration have the potential to document these benefits. Implementing creative teaching will require serious, long-term investment in professional development for teachers and administrators, and basic improvements in pre-service teacher education. Yet it has the potential to result in brighter, more motivated, and more effective teachers, and to result in students with deeper understanding and improved creative and social skills.
