The Four-Part Lesson

“Pitting the learning of basic knowledge against the development of creative thinking is a false choice.  Both need to be cultivated.  The stronger one’s knowledge about the subject at hand, the more nuanced one’s creativity can be in addressing a new problem.  Just as knowledge amounts to little without the exercise of ingenuity and imagination, creativity absent a sturdy foundation of knowledge builds a shaky house.”
