Imaginary Tap into hidden creativity, engage students in the learning process, and foster creative thinking and expression with innovative techniques based on Downing's research and experience. Imaginary excursions, choice mapping, Socratic seminars, storytelling, question stringing, scripted interviews, ensemble reading-and more-any educator can use these techniques.

Collard suggests teachers focus on teaching particular skills or set of behaviors, rather than preparing students for specific careers. Teach creative skills explicitly.
