"Teacher Creativity Is Over-rated"

True that.

Yes, some teachers are Superteachers, but most--probably about 68%--are within one standard deviation from the mean. The Superteachers may be able to fashion lessons, MacGuyver-like, from nothing, but the merely competent need assistance or a guide--something like a well-ordered textbook.

Joanne (see blogroll) has an interesting post today about teacher creativity and teaching to a script. Good reading, especially the comments.
