Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution." Albert Einstein

Dad sent me this quote this week.

I wonder, should it change anything about the way we teach?

I really liked the quote today. I'll probably use it with some of the groups I work with. I also plan to use some of Anna's pictures and your sewing projects for my "Go Green for the Holidays" program if you don't mind.

I'm writing a paper on creativity for my abnormal psych class and one of the studies I read was about how teachers often "value creative students less than they value bright students, in part because they associate creativity with nonconformity, impulsivity, and disruptive behavior." I think it is because imagination is not something that can be rubricked, or even really understood in black and white terms. Susan and I were just talking about teaching poetry, the inherent difficulty in approaching it. Sometimes you just have to leave someone alone in a room with a paintbrush and hope they figure it out.
