It’s a fair question. I’ve heard similar questions to this at teaching conferences, in discussions and versions of it on social media.
I’ve even thought it myself.
“This creative work takes a lot of time. Does it really give a return on all of that investment?
There’s plenty of evidence that points to YES … and it’s a skill that kids will need for the world they’ll face in the future.
I created this video to make my case for creative work in the classroom. I hope you love it!
