“The Costanza Gambit”


I’ve previously posted about how I’ve used the idea of thinking “oppositely” to help find creative solutions to problems (see
Thinking “Inside Out” — How Could I Use This In A Lesson?).

Shawn Callahan came up with a name for this — he calls it “The Costanza Gambit” after the character in Seinfield.

Check out this fun video clip illustrating it.

I’m adding this to The Best Sources Of Advice On Helping Students Strengthen & Develop Their Creativity.
