Questions:
                         How do we teach creativity?
                         What exactly is creativity?
                         What is the relationship between creativity
                           and critical thinking?
                         How do we assess creativity?
                         Where does this fit in our already busy lives?

Assessing Creativity?
                         (not the bugaboo we think it is)




                                  If our purpose is clear,
                              and our guidelines narrow,
                         then we have a definitive rubric
                            for evaluating creative work.
