The activities in this course are an outgrowth of the Future Problem Solving Program International, a program originally developed by E. Paul Torrance who was a pioneer in creativity. The curriculum provides direct instruction that introduces students to the creative problem solving process and then provides practice through the application of problem solving in a variety of contexts.
The course consists of lesson plans for nine units, with extensive resources for each unit including handouts, overheads, and teacher reference materials.
