After having just written a draft article on experience and creativity saying such uplifting things as "It is the history, process and provenance of the creation that gives it meaning, relevance, and ultimately, truth" it is a disappointment to read this item on the same topic from EdSurge that depicts "assessment as the key to everyday creativity in the classroom" and that " there will be the layer of assessment that relates directly to the content." Be as creative as you want, the message seems to be, but don't create the think wrong. I can just imagine Katie White going to schools across the country draining the life out of art class.
