The Thomas Tallis school in London has developed and published a set of school/teacher-friendly materials to guide instruction and assessment based on the OECD’s document: Progression in Student Creativity in School. This document identified 5 creativity habits of mind: Inquisitive, Collaborative, Persistent, Disciplined, and Imaginative.
The Tallis school’s habits page features posters explaining each habit of mind, a pedagogy wheel, and an assessment wheel to help students reflect on progress in developing their Habits of Mind. The pedagogy toolkit is a particularly rich source for teachers on how to engage students in each habit.
