Abstract

THE PURDUE CREATIVITY PROGRAM * Some of the research reported herein was performed pursuant to a grant from the Office of Education, U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Contractors undertaking such projects under government sponsorship are encouraged to express freely their professional judgment in the conduct of the project. Points of view or opinions do not, therefore, necessarily represent official Office of Education policy or position. Volume 4 Number 2 SprIng 1970 Developing CreativeThinking: The Purdue Creativity Progrem The brief presentations at the beginning of each tape give specific suggestions about creative thinking and emphasize its value and importance. In one program, for example, suggestions are made for uses of creative ideas outside the classroom, indicating that children who have many unusual ideas for play or games often have more fun. Children are told about the value of being open to stimuli for their environment, about the importance of memory and problemsolving and about being tolerant of other people's ideas. The presentations further suggest that creative thinkers solve problems by putting together ideas (some of which may be humorous) in new ways to come up with original products, or solutions. The content of the stories is historical.
