Overview

Inventions And Inventing For Gifted Students by Thomas P. Hebert, Frances A. Karnes, Kristen R. Stephens

Inventing involves creativity applied to a problem-solving process, which can be taught. Through teaching instructional units on inventing, multiple creative skills are infused into one unit. Teachers who provide their students with such instruction see inventions as a natural way of packaging creativity training in an authentic and meaningful way. Applying creative thinking skills and a knowledge of a field of study to create exciting inventions is at the heart of the inventing process. This guide offers a practical introduction to the inventing process: getting students interesting in inventing, teaching the inventing process, patenting new product ideas, participating in inventions conventions and competitions, and an extensive listing of print and Web-based resources. This is one of the books in Prufrock Press' popular Practical Strategies Series in Gifted Education. This series offers a unique collection of tightly focused books that provide a concise, practical introduction to important topics concerning the education of gifted children. The guides offer a perfect beginner's introduction to key information about gifted and talented education.
