Earlier this fall, SAD 28 launched a Community Book Read of “Creative Schools” by Ken Robinson.

The Book Read will culminate in a group discussion on Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Camden-Rockport Middle School Library. Parents, students and community members interested in innovative education are encouraged to participate. Those who have not read the book may prepare for the discussion by viewing Robinson’s TED talk “Do Schools Kill Creativity?” at TED.com.

Copies of “Creative Schools” may still be available to borrow at Camden Public Library, Rockport Public Library, Camden-Rockport Elementary School and Camden-Rockport Middle School.

The SAD 28 School Board, which oversees Camden-Rockport Elementary School and Camden-Rockport Middle School, chose “Creative Schools” as its 2016 summer read and would like to share the book’s important ideas with the wider K-8 school community.

“This book offers some important ideas about refocusing education to foster creativity. I’m eager to hear the community’s thoughts about how we may incorporate some of these ideas to enhance learning in our schools,” said Superintendent Maria Libby. Libby noted also that “Creative Schools” is a great follow up to last year’s public screening of the film “Most Likely to Succeed.”
