Creativity requires depth–  Project/paper “Teaching civilizations is like walking down a  hallway in a long building.  We might  occasionally stop and open a door to look inside  and then move on.  We rarely take enough time  to go into the room.  Each room is a different  period or topic.  We may look thru the door and  see two paintings or hear some music, but not  much more.  We need to assign students to go  into the rooms.”   –GE Faculty Seminar 2004
