How would you encourage creativity in the classroom?

Sample Answer: I believe that encouraging the creation of ideas and allowing students to assemble their own ideas and thoughts is a good way to promote creativity within the classroom. I challenge my students to be free-thinkers and am always open to suggestions from them. Uniqueness and originality are rewarded. My classroom is one where freedom of expression is encouraged and honored and where the student is taught to analyze and think for themselves.

Tip: School districts are always looking for teachers who foster creativity within the classroom, so this answer is perfect. It is also a good idea to be able to provide examples of how you would help children to develop their creativity.
