1) CoRT Training
For Grades 4 & 5ABC
For the first time, we are teaching creative thinking skills for primary students on a weekly basis. CoRT (Cognitive Research Trust) program is a comprehensive approach to the teaching of thinking. Grade 4 students are trained on CoRT 1, which is designed to encourage students to broaden their thinking, and direct it towards various areas when making a decision. G5 students however, are trained on CoRT 4, covering the basic creative techniques, procedures and attitudes.
The lessons are a mixture of: direct instruction by the teacher, student group work, class discussions, individual work, and homework projects. During the second semester G5DEF and G6 students will be taught CoRT4 – creativity.
