What is creativity? Why are creativity and innovation important to your subject/grade level?

When was the last time you had the opportunity to be creative? Do you consider yourself creative? Evaluate yourself based on the Creativity Fluency Rubric on p. 146 in your text. How did you do?


1. Take a nap. Then, get up and do something creative. Be prepared to report what you did in class on Monday. This is a legitimate assignment . . .

3. For Wednesday, please bring your book to class.
