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 14. Each level contains a student activity book, and the first two levels also have picture cards measuring 8-1/2" x 11" available to supplement them.

The workbook/picture card format of the first two levels allows parents flexibility in their 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, for pre-teens and young teens, is a quantum leap to a more sophisticated level of problem solving. At this level, children confront high-interest, adolescent-type situations and enter a more sophisticated problem-solving atmosphere. Here they will find a ten-step problem-solving plan, which is designed to ensure a problem solver’s careful analysis of the problem and possible solutions before undertaking action. A complete introductory lesson using the plan is included. This is followed by seventeen different problem scenarios that have no simple answers. These problems encourage critical thinking and Socratic dialogue to reach a solution.
