Every time the children talk about the Jack-in-the-box, it is grey days. The children are making stories about the Jack-in-the-box and his personality, such as him being an evil wizard or that his box is a Pandora’s box and that Jack is there as a guardian to prevent all the bad things from coming out (page 72, lines 3-8). Notwithstanding of the fact that the children have never seen him (the Jack-in-the-box), they still make these stories about him.

He was raised in an orphanage, after his father left his pregnant mother and his mother died in childbirth. He caused many problems with the other children because of his ability to use magic, until the age of 11 when Professor Dumbledore came to offer him a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was a very bright child and thrived at his new school, earning respect from teachers and finding the many secrets of the castle, though never truly having friends. At around the age of 15 he began to focus on his new goals: to become the most powerful wizard of all time, to kill or remove all muggle-borns from the wizarding society, and to become immortal. He changed his name to Lord Voldemort and set out to make 7 Horcruxes, each housing a small part of his soul.
The article “High-Jinks: Shoot-Out” by Guy Martin, researches the story of several New York High Schools, participating in an end of year activity that is involved with mediocre violence, made for kids to have some fun with their town, and their classmates.

This story is convincing to the audience, and it enables them to look at Robinson’s talk with a critical mind and hence appreciate his assertion that indeed schools kill creativity. Robinson prompts the crowd to imagine further what it would be if they allowed children to explore their talents while still young. He mentions that the society is wary of making mistakes and the idea has been coined in the children’s minds that they grow up wishing to be experts and this shuts down their creativity( 5:21). Robinson provokes the crowd into thinking about William Shakespeare and makes a joke about his father shutting him down his style of speech since it was not clear to other people (7:28). The strategy is useful since it touches on people’s emotion and even allows them to imagine a way they would change their parenting

Paul Collard & Janet Looney did research about creativities benefits in the classroom. In one case, there were a group of elementary schoolboys who were having trouble paying attention. As a result of this, the teacher took a creativity building approach to get them to listen to the teacher. The students were instructed to “create their own superheroes, not based on the comic books, but derived from their own imagination” out of clay (Collard 5). They did this and then proceeded to teach the boys about sculpture and art.
