Abstract

The mysterious power of the brain invites as much speculation as the romantic notion that all writers possess a pinch of madness—but can brain science help teachers reconcile the pragmatic demands of program review with the playful, uncertain explorations of the creative process? A diverse panel of teachers who have taught and assessed K-12/BA/MFA curricula share how recent studies in creativity impact how they teach and show how to design assessment that survives this STEM-obsessed age.
