[QUOTE]Originally posted by Munchkin Man: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [qb] Creativity does not issue from ritual or rote task. [/qb][/QUOTE]_____ Creativity? Ahem! The Munchkin Man is a math teacher. Not an art teacher. The Munchkin Man's primary task is to teach his students the basics and to try to get them to master the basics. The basics come first. Before you can learn to think outside the box, you have to learn how to think inside the box. Too many students don't know how to think at all. Therefore, the place to start is inside the box. You start with the basics. The best way to teach the basics is through plenty of drill, repeition, and rote practice. The Munchkin Man used to give his students lots and lots of drill, repetition, and rote practice. The Munchkin Man used to give his students lots and lots of worksheets. The Munchkin Man always designed and composed his own worksheets. The Munchkin Man never stooped down to using those inferior and tacky worksheets that are found in those commercial workbooks. The Munchkin Man's worksheets were vastly superior. They had a higher level of order and design. They were better structured. Most importantly, they had more problems to keep the students busier for longer periods of time. Designing and composing mathematics worksheets is yet another way in which the Munchkin Man used his extraordinary literary gifts. Indeed, it is the very fortunate student who was ever blessed with the opportunity to work on a Munchkin Man Worksheet. Best Wishes, Munchkin Man [/QB][/QUOTE]
