Creativity is a natural ability and a personality trait, a skill that can be learned. Classroom activities where teachers take the initiative to teach, these skills promote creativity. There are certain strategies and classroom activities that teachers can do to promote and encourage creativity in the classroom.
The Heritage School North Campus, which is one of the best CBSE schools in Dehradun, makes sure that our students move out of their classes and learn new, different and interesting things. Our teaching method is not limited to academics. Activities like Dance, Drama, Sports, and Games, and Music are an integral part of our education.
Here is how learning these activities have helped our students:
Dance a basic form of individual and cultural expression. It combines experimentation and creativity which develops self-knowledge and social skills. Drama gives students the opportunity to enact roles which enables them to express their problem-solving skills both verbally and non-verbally. Dance and drama both liberate students to think beyond, get to know things they never knew before and develop creative instincts.
Inculcate Social Skills
Creative skills such as socially useful productive work (SUPW) help students to develop values likes empathy toward others, compassion, social responsibility. Students in such classes are taught activities like gardening, art and craft, painting. Music another creative skill enriches the lives of students and lets them become a better learner at school. Such skills allow students to use their imagination, to cooperate with their fellow students, and to be confident and self-motivated. This teaches students how to use their creativity. All of these skills are a pathway to enhance creativity and invent new ideas.
It is without a doubt that these activities prepare students to face the audience in the world. It helps students to overcome their fear of public speaking, fear of judgment and lack of courage by putting them straight into the limelight. The most important benefits of getting involved these activities help to boost the confidence of students.
The Heritage School North Campus being the top CBSE schools in Dehradun intends to extend better quality of education to all their students. We strongly believe that these activities seamlessly teach students things that are necessary and will be helpful for their lifelong learning.
