My favorite tent is "creative thinking is work." Being creative doesn't mean you have frequent moments of genius or insight out of the blue. It's a process of learning constantly, being resourceful with your knowledge, and being open to using it in novel ways.

This makes so much sense to me--we have done a little of this with the cartoon and graph assignments. Thinking I should plan more.
