The purpose of this paper shall be to explore the nature and characteristics of creativity and to try to understand what atmosphere and discipline best motivates children to be creative.
Creativity has been termed synonymous with inventiveness, imagination, and originality. In the educational viewpoint, there are other, more complete ways to define this word. Creative teaching once meant correlating art, music, writing or dramatics with other subjects. Now, however, it has been expanded to cover more than in the past. Morse and Wingo discuss creativity as "seeing or expressing new relationships."
