The author talks a lot about the connection between creativity and student learning, in your opinion, how are intelligence and creativity related? Are the notions of imagination and creativity captured within any SOLs you have found? If so which ones, and in what ways?
I believe that creativity depends on intelligence. To fully be creative you have to have some to a lot of knowledge on whatever you want to be creative on. For example, if you want to be creative and make another version of a song, you have to have knowledge in that field. I definitely believe that imagination and creativity is captured in SOLs. Mainly, we see creativity and imagination in science but could be applied to history as well. For science, we have to use our imagination to picture elements, atoms, states of matter, etc and be creative to draw what we think they look like. For history, we also have to use our imaginations and mentally picture events that have happened in the past.
