Creative Problem-Solving Program: What To Do?

Creative Problem-Solving Program: What To Do? Series Cover

The complete Creative Problem-Solving Program consists of three levels for children ages 5 to 12. Each level contains student activity books, as well as picture cards measuring 8 1/2" x 11".

The workbook/picture card format of the program allows parents flexibility in instructional method: the activity books require children to do some writing, whereas the picture cards lead to more discussion-oriented lessons. The books and cards may be used independently or in combination.

For Levels A and B, the student books contain activity pages that encourage children to analyze problems and develop solutions and scenarios of their results. The cards depict an age-appropriate real-life problem on the front and material for the parent on the back, which includes a story to read, vocabulary, questions to stimulate creative problem solving, and extension activities.

Level C (available soon), for pre-teenage children, is a quantum leap to a more sophisticated level of problem solving, with an emphasis on defining a problem and implementing solutions. At this level, children confront high-interest, adolescent-type situations and enter a more sophisticated problem-solving atmosphere. Here they will find an “Eleven Step Problem-Solving Plan,” which is designed to ensure a problem solver’s careful follow-through before undertaking action. A complete introductory lesson using the plan is included. Children learn to work with a flow chart, the PERT Chart, and the Milestone Chart. Substantial extension activities are provided for each problem.
