Mary Ann Storey Culver's insight:

Watch this short video to reiterate what is wrong with American classrooms...it's not the content or the core concepts...it's the delivery and the methodology of how it is presented in classrooms. I am priviliged to teach the concepts of creative thinking and problem-solving techniques to students at BGSU.  The students who take the course understand the differences in how to help all students achieve their highest potentials, and I hope they go then and affect many, many others in their own teaching career.

He said students were taught routines and tools that enabled them to use their higher order thinking skills to be problem solvers as well as problem seekers.
Mary Ann Storey Culver's insight:

Although I am constantly mindful of the students with high cognitive skills and the need to be placed together so that they can gain new and meaningful threads of perspectives from like-minded students, it is often that a higher student is required to help a lower student with comprehension activities.  While good for the lower-ended, our best and brighest need to be challenged by those who can challenge them.  Let's keep in mind ALL students in our planning for creative learning environments.
