Welcome to The CREATE Method, a new method to help bring creativity and curiosity into the classroom! 

Our method is created by teachers - for teachers and uses six unique steps to help curate the ultimate classroom experience! We know that every classroom, teacher, and student is unique, that's why we made sure that these six steps can be used in any order and completely tailored specifically to your needs! Now let's look at exactly what The CREATE Method does.

What is the CREATE Method?

The CREATE Method centers not just on the traditional creative problem-solving process but the unique creative person solving those problems.

According to recent research, being a creative critical thinker is predicted to be one of the most important skills needed in the future. The problem is that either people don’t believe they are creative or we, as a society, do not nurture their creativity. Businesses and schools must start recognizing the significance of creativity in everyday practice - from curriculum to professional development.

What Does CREATE Stand For?

Content Curator

As educators, we know our content.  But, curating the information means sharing knowledge in an in-depth, relevant, and challenging manner.  The CREATE method allows educators and students to consume information critically, ignite curiosity, and creatively question information.

Risk Facilitator

Many students and teachers express anxiety about sharing new or contrasting ideas, fearing failure and judgment.  This segment of the CREATE method aims to change that mindset and illustrate the importance of embracing ambiguity and uncertainty, being open-minded, and deferring judgment.

Experience Navigator

By creating unique, inquiry, and problem-based units, students can individualize their classroom experience. The CREATE method navigates educators through ways to engage and challenge students, to embrace challenges and problem-solving in a meaningful and relevant way.

Attitude Shifter

How we view the learning process, ourselves, and others can significantly impact our ability to be curious and think creatively and critically. Learning to shift one’s attitude to align with each unique situation filled with ambiguity is essential when presented with differing perspectives.  The CREATE method examines open-mindedness, deferring judgment, embracing failures, and the impact attitude can have on a creative classroom environment.

Team Transformer

Learning how to function in a creative environment allows team members to be stronger, efficient, confident thinkers and problem-solvers.  This portion of the CREATE method focuses on the key tools and strategies to transform communication skills and team effectiveness.

Evaluation Designer

Soft skills such as creativity and curiosity can be a challenge to assess.  During this section of the CREATE method, learn how to provide opportunities for students to take ownership of their learning, and design assessments that offer numerous chances for feedback, all while encouraging risk and creative thinking.
