Creativity in Schools

Someone told me about this video and Sir Ken Robinson has a lot of great things to say. One thing I love about about TPRS is that it brings creativity back into the cold, stale classroom. Students start to think of school outside the book in a real way. If we start to bring creativity into the classroom, I think we will see gains in L2 that could not have been predicted. We do this by relaxing, letting the students give their clever answers, and by creating an environment where they feel comfortable as well as appreciated.
