Are you looking for ways to channel the creativity and focus the thoughts of your gifted students as you teach them creative problem solving? Brainstorming can often be an ideal way to do that, especially if it is done using SCAMPER, which goes beyond making "just another list." Join Melissa Edwards as she explores a way to tap into the creative ideas possible by using SCAMPER to guide, direct, and focus brainstorming. In this participatory webinar, you will get a chance to not only learn about the SCAMPER method but also to be involved as we brainstorm our way through this webinar!

I think that SCAMPER will be a useful series of steps to help students come up with new ideas and solve problems.

Thank you!
I teach 7th/8th GT, and I almost stopped watching at the beginning when I heard "3rd/4th grade". But Ms. Edwards was correct: there really isn't anything new under the sun, and a technique that works in early elementary can still be a framework for older people. This SCAMPER method would definitely work at older levels. I also have an MBA, and in an earlier life worked in business settings. These kinds of structured thinking guides are definitely used in the business and engineering worlds.
