Students are falling behind. 
Teachers are quitting faster than ever.

80% of students are falling behind in skills that students had in the 1980s, while over 50% of teachers have said they will likely leave teaching within the next three years.

 

You can fix that.

Talk to us about how our professional development for teachers, admin, and entire districts can help you reach your goals.

Curiosity 2 Create is for those:

  • ​Educators who want to foster deeper learning experiences

  • Districts seeking teacher support amidst turnover and the influx of new educators with minimal pedagogical skills

  • Those who want to incorporate proactive teaching methods to address a critical thinking and problem-solving skills gap among students

  • Schools seeking to address learning barriers due to lack of engagement

  • Teachers who aim to transition students into enthusiastic learners

What The CREATE Method Does

Increase Teacher Retention

The CREATE Method  gives time back to the teachers and lowers their overall stress.

Improve Student Engagment

With a stronger teacher-to-student dynamic, students are eager to answer questions and participate in lessons, all while increasing test scores.

Reduce Chronic Absenteeism

By creating a classroom environment students don't want to miss, you can see a positive increase in student attendance.

Empower the Entire School

The CREATE Method helps strengthen the teacher and student bond to create a collaborative environment schoolwide.

Meet the Author of the CREATE Method

Katie Trowbridge

During my 25 years of teaching high school English, I witnessed firsthand the decline in student engagement and the loss of passion for teaching among my own colleagues. I knew something needed to change, so I developed The CREATE Method with the help of some amazing teachers. My goal was to create professional development and coaching that teachers actually want. I now bring the CREATE Method to schools, conferences, and teachers nationwide.

"Our goal is to inspire you by enabling you to become creative problem solvers and critical thinkers who seamlessly integrate these skills into your classrooms. We believe mastering creativity enhances social-emotional wellness and fosters a supportive and engaging community where knowledge and communication thrive in a collaborative environment."
President and CEO, Katie Trowbridge

Integrate Creative Learning

Examples of how to incorporate this approach

  • Assign open-ended projects that allow students to explore their creativity and express their thoughts and emotions

  • Incorporate storytelling and narrative writing into lessons, allowing students to develop their unique voices

  • Encourage students to design and build models or create inventions to solve real-world problems

  • Use puzzles or games to engage students in mathematical thinking

By incorporating creative thinking, educators can nurture students' curiosity, imagination, and innovation skills, preparing them for success in an increasingly complex and dynamic world.
