keeping creativity in school
maggie delaney loves creativity. With spring semester comes standardized tests and "getting through the material" -- the very things we loathe about teaching and learning this time of year. Our hope for 2012 is that every maggie delaney girl has a chance each day to be creative in some way. The readings today at church was about the 3 wise men bringing gold frankincense and myrrh. The story of the 3 wise men always reminds me of my favorite education reformer, Ken Robinson, who talks about creativity, frankencense, and schools in perhaps the best TED talk ever. Watch Ken's talk, listen for the story of the 3 wise men, and comment with your favorite quote.
