Many of the complex problems facing communities around the world will likely require innovation and creative solutions. Educators looking for ways to encourage creativity in their students may want to check out these suggestions offered on Learner Log, the blog of Annenberg Learner (whose abundant teaching resources have been featured in the Scout Report numerous times over the years). Here, readers will find a collection of five resources drawn from Annenberg Learner's archives, all chosen with classroom creativity in mind. One highlighted resource is a workshop for middle school teachers on integrating the arts with other subjects in their classrooms. Several resources provide further ideas and materials for interdisciplinary teaching, such as combining science with history, math with literature, and art with science. This collection also includes a ten-minute video exploring the link between creativity and REM sleep. In addition to these curated resources, Learner Log includes a link to one of their previous articles on arts integration across the curriculum, as well as a link to Education World's list of suggestions for celebrating International Creativity Month in the classroom.
