I took a single course in education -- a grueling thing in which we were filmed and critiqued as we were trained to use three different pedagogies --

anyway, I taught for half a class? on general creativity -- I brought in little toys etc. like I did for the haiku class (if you're writing in class, as students seem to want to do in poetry, you need texts or objects, otherwise, it gets pretty thin) -- I found if you lavish praise on the most unusual thing that each student does, whatever it might be (no matter how ordinary), and show the other students that's what you're doing, they, as a group, become very very creative.
