Sue Boudreau replied to Sue Boudreau's discussion How can we revive creativity in schools, projects, teachers, admin and KIDS? in the group PBL ~ Better with Practice
"Yes, Richard - agree about giving kids more choice and control. We tend to be most creative in areas we care about and that suit our personal talents. As to the terror of failing, they need more TIME for them to try stuff, fail and be encouraged to…"

Richard Garcia replied to Sue Boudreau's discussion How can we revive creativity in schools, projects, teachers, admin and KIDS? in the group PBL ~ Better with Practice

Sue Boudreau replied to Suzie Boss's discussion Capturing PBL Wisdom in the group PBL ~ Better with Practice
"I'm loving PARTS of Lemov's book but thank you for crystalizing what feels a little off to me too - a little too teacher-centered. But having said that, even within a pbl class room, there are times when I have to run a discussion…"
