"Every child is born full of creativity. Nurturing it is one of the most important things educators do. Creativity makes your students better communicators and problem solvers. It prepares them to thrive in today’s world — and to shape tomorrow’s. This is collection of project guides that bring creative expression to every subject. The projects in the #EveryoneCanCreate guides teach students to develop and communicate ideas through video, photography, music and drawing. And they help ignite creativity by giving teachers fun and meaningful ways to bring these skills into any lesson, at any grade level." Download the Design Workbook in Pages format. Each of these digital books is also available in the Rocky View Self Service section of your #rvsed mobile device!
