The Creativity Playbook: A Guide to our Creativity Debates by James S. Catterall
What is creativity? Can we measure it? Can we teach creativity? Is creativity a skill or thinking disposition?
Dr. Catterall unpacks creativity in 25 brief, informative chapters outlining what we know about the central questions of creative development. The book also addresses Turnaround Schools, STEM and STEAM programs, how to evaluate a creativity-focused program, and the neuroscience of art and empathy.
"As a patent attorney, I have given a great deal of thought to the relationship between creativity and invention. Dr. Catterall offers very interesting insights into the common denominators between the two. Although still intangible he provides a network for illuminating how creativity enhances invention. I highly recommend this book to a number of my colleagues, inventors, researchers and professors and thank him for defining the common denominator for invention, creativity, and the stepping stones of human development."
