Creative Educator – 5 Hallmarks of a Creative Project

Creative Educator – 5 Hallmarks of a Creative Project.

 

As I read through this nugget of classroom creativity I thought this would be appropriate for sharing.

My favorite of the five is number three:  If a work is truly creative, it doesn’t even require the student’s name on it.  Because if something is the fruit of creative labor, there can be very little doubt as to who created it.

Such a truth as ever there was.  I remember when I had packed classrooms, six times a day, and I was evaluating stacks of student work. I could pick out different pieces and attribute them correctly without looking for the signatures on the backs of them.  It wasn’t that I was some sort of psychic or anything. It was because those kids literally put themselves into the work.
