Some creativity

I started reading edumorphing only a couple weeks ago when Jo wrote about him eliminating worksheets from his teaching. Woody commented on my post that he had, indeed, done that and that he was excited by the prospect. Now he is sharing with us some of what he does instead of worksheets.

He writes:
These students are not used to sharing their voice. It takes many months of explaining to them that their voice counts when it comes to school.
and he closes the post by saying:
Expect creativity and you will get it. Expect the minimum and you will get it.
The same could be said of teachers, couldn't it?

This is certainly my experience as well, unfortunately :-(
It takes a lot of effort to make the change
