I am plugging a wonderful teacher weblog from Nan Hathaway of Colorado:

http://artatrms.blogspot.com/

She teaches art at the Rocky Mountain School for the Gifted and
Creative...her photos and stories are very inspiring...it is worth
scrolling through her entire 'blog.

A recent post includes material from the state of Colorado, including:

<<What are some blocks to creativity?
• Expectation of judging and evaluating.
• Constantly being watched or observed while working on a creative
project.
• Creating a competitive atmosphere.
• Conforming to others’ expectations.
• Anxiety.
• Perfectionism.
• Reward systems.
• Authoritarianism.
• External locus of control.
• Trying to be creative.
• Requiring the one right answer.>>

Many educators today feel that "gifted" guidelines are just plain good
education--for everyone. Take a look; what do you think?
