Creative Thinking & Generating Ideas

Generating Ideas is a full lesson plan with a video from NOVA and PBS about generating ideas for innovative and creative projects. This lesson could work in a number of different types of classrooms. For the Art room, the methods used in the lesson could be focused towards a specific art related topic. For example, in an Art History classroom, have students brainstorm how they could get more families to visit museums? For a Drawing class, you could give the students a number of drawing tools and ask how could you improve upon these tools? The lesson’s main goal is get students to learn how to generate ideas freely and think creatively.
