... but finally put it down because I wanted to work on my astronomy PowerPoint. I admit it -- I love making PowerPoints for my classes. I work hard on them, try to make them readable - fret over the kind of font and font size, how much on the page, that sort of thing. I LOVE hunting down just the right image. I just love when I find a cool yet odd pic -- like the one of Kepler with a California roll in his calipers. Awesome!
I've asked my students, "What's wrong with this picture?" and to my delight kids GOT it in about 20 seconds.
So is tweaking a PowerPoint an act of creativity? Or just another way of procrastinating before grading papers?
I think I'm going to stop declaring my next day's creative exercise. I feel sort of embarrassed that I don't have that banana bread baked yet.
