At Horne Learning Services, we promote 'creativity' in our lessons and in our students.
Instead of doing routine grammar work with ABC answers, we try to inspire our students to think much more creatively.
Creative Writing is conducted once or twice per month where students are given three random words and are asked to write a short story based on those three words. This in turn, stimulates creative thinking.
We often give students the opportunity to speak to the class on a variety of topics, encouraging them to think creatively and not just go for the 'textbook answers'.
Word games and making sentences are a lot more fun and creative than circling correct answers in a grammar book.
Importantly, when searching for creative ideas in our classes, there are no wrong answers. There is no pressure to be right, and at the same time, more is learned!
Whatever you may do in life, what does 'creativity' mean for you?
