Thinking versus Knowing

A student brought me this piece of art last week and asked me if I thought it  was "done". 

We reviewed what she had done and discussed where she may be able to add more and the possible effects. 

I took a picture of her "unfinished" piece and she went back to her desk to work on it. By the end of class she declared she was "done"!

Below are the before and after shots. It's a great illustration of thinking versus knowing. Can you spot the difference? How does it feel when you transition from thinking to knowing? Imagine the feeling for your students.

Tomorrow starts a new week. How will you open your student's minds?

Creativity NOT Conformity!
