Encouraging Creativity

Encouraging Creativity

This PowerPoint can be used directly within your subject area or adapted to be more subject specific by adding in success criteria to help students understand what knowledge their end product should demonstrate. I use this in my science lessons but believe it could be used in any subject area, especially ones which are often "dry" and not traditionally "practically" engaging. Please review my work. I would love your feedback!
