I acknowledge the fact that the proposed solution of forming a class in creativity could potentially accelerate the knowledge and understanding of creativity and resolve the issue of the declining creativity quotient. However, the consequences and outcomes of this specifically- focused class may not be the most efficient or effective method of teaching students about the subject. Teaching creative thinking as a separate class detracts from the need to teach a comprehensive and versatile set of multiple core subjects, and deters the value of creativity in distinctive applications. A separate class would demonstrate to students that creative thinking is a topic regarded as isolated and distinct, and is ultimately incompatible with traditional school curriculum. Due to this assumption, a separate class had to be mandatorily produced for the purpose of teaching students strictly about creativity.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
