Creative Conditions

In my experience as a student teacher. One of the things I learned about was “Creative conditions”, The idea is not that the teacher be really creative and come up with all sorts of ideas to inform content. The idea is that you provide a premise for the students to create to the content. You have to scale up to this by having smaller opportunities for ideas and inquiry in collaborative groups and then take the scaffolds away and allow for applications in other contexts. It is hard to take your hands off the wheel, when you think that you are the driver.
