Suggestions From the Field

January 15, 2011

Here are some links that folks have shared from the field

The Torrance Creativity Test has been in the news lately. You can read about it at the Teaching NOW blog written by Anthony Rebora (December 16, 2010). Data from this test shows that the kids’ scores on the commonly used test show that test scores dropped steadily from 1990 to 2008. You can read more by clicking here.

Some great resources on these two sites that was forwarded to me by Jane Dalton. We welcome Jane who is the arts education professor position at Maine College of Art. And the other link.

This is a link to an article that Winthrop art teacher Lisa Gilman forwarded. It is called “Is It Just Us or Are Kids Getting Really Stupid?”. Whether you agree with the article or not it is interesting reading.

Bob McIntire from the Maine Department of Education shared this YouTube with me. You might want to share it with your students.
