Take Away's From Doug Reeves

Grade 3 Take Away's

1. Integration is so important to allow them to get creative!

2. Creativity doesn't mean that you don't need the fundamental skills! Building the foundation is still important.

3. Only way to give value to creativity is to evaluate it.

4. We need to focus on timely feedback and to know that making mistakes is okay, because they are learning. Things won't be perfect the first time.
