This talk examines the idea that creativity is all around us. It helps us solve everyday problems, and is everywhere in the languages we speak and write. Using Ronald Carter’s idea that creativity is not an ordinary property of exceptional people, but an exceptional property of ordinary people, I will make some general observations about creativity before moving on to the main topic: creativity in the classroom. Then we will look at how to recognize it, develop activities that encourage it, and nurture the creative spirit in our students.
