Julia Adkins 

December 2006, Volume 100, Issue 5, Page 46

The article describes the author's discovery made in a plane geometry class  that type of questions asked by students may reflect creativity of teaching as opposed to traditional teacher's evaluation by quality of questions asked by the teacher. Describing her experience the author comes to defining of two levels of creative teaching: level one where the teacher asks thought-provoking questions and a higher level where students generate questions leading towards discovery of new relationships.
