Quantity in Basket:none
Code: 1-57273-127-3

This volume contributes a unique perspective toward understanding and researching children’s creativity. Theoretical and empirical studies presented throughout the book distinguish adult and childhood creativity in the conceptual frameworks, research methods, and studies of identification, development, and training of creative individuals. The complexity of creative phenomena and varied definitions of creativity are examined. Authors discuss development of children’s interests and motivational influences such as effort, persistence, fantasy, reward, and environment. The roles of choice, evaluation, and judgment as essential parts of the creative process are also analyzed. Moreover, methods and instruments to assess creativity in school-aged children are analyzed and procedures are presented to interpret and integrate formal, informal, and diagnostic assessment data.
