    More on Scott,

    “Students need to know that they are a whole being, full of many potentialities, and there’s a heck of a lot good within that can be nurtured and expressed.

    I’m honored that my interview about these pressing issues is on the front page of the Penn Current today. Here’s the Q & A, where we cover a range of topics, including my experience teaching positive psychology (one of the most meaningful things I’ve ever done!), the impact of labeling, theories of intelligence, the development of creativity, and educational structures that can support the best in everyone.

    Just want to say that I appreciate the use of “potentialities” and “heck” in the same sentence.

    Ha! the opening quote in Scott’s book from another wordsmith,

    “The creative genius may be at once naïve and knowledgeable, being at home equally to primitive symbolism and to rigorous logic. (S)He is both more primitive and more cultured, more destructive and more constructive, occasionally crazier and yet adamantly saner, than the average person.
    – Frank X. Barron, Psychologist and Creativity Researcher” 1922-2002

    Enjoy the snow!
