About the Book

Brainstorming is like any other skill: The more you practice, the better you become.

But students, teachers, children, and adults continue to struggle with creative thinking, and when it comes to brainstorming ideas as members of a group, they often fail to contribute.

Neil Wuttke, who has been a primary schoolteacher for forty-two years, walks you through brainstorming in this guide that shows how calling upon experiences and memories can help you express your thoughts and think for yourself.

He explores how to apply brainstorming strategies in a classroom setting with activities that encourage creative thinking. Whether it’s using the word “silver” in as many ways you can, naming things that have wheels, or listing “chains,” the activities are fun and thought provoking.

Boost your confidence, rejuvenate your memory, and put some excitement into your life with the insights, lessons, and activities in Basic Brainstorming.
