    Great job, Kelly! This is really in important part of my presentation here as well. We can’t simply ask or require students to be innovative or creative. We need to invite them to be so, as Dale Dougherty states. If we don’t allow them to make personal and meaningful connections to and with ideas and content and invite them to create meaningful and interesting things, then passion will likely gather dust.
