Synopses & Reviews
Are you striving to establish a more creative and imaginative classroom? This new completely updated edition of a classic text will show you how.
Written in a clear and practical way by leading researchers and practitioners this is a core text for all trainee and practicing teachers who wish to maintain high standards when approaching the primary curriculum creatively. Throughout, the authors offer help and advice on the planning and implementation of effective creative teaching, provide examples of best practice, and define a clear philosophical rationale for more creative classrooms.
This second edition will be built on a slightly amended structure to be applicable to a range of possible national and local curriculum structures that may emerge. The focus on subjects will be retained and expanded upon but the organisation between the first half of the book and the second half will be along the classical divisions of humanities and sciences rather than the original structure of national curriculum core and foundation subjects. This new edition will also feature a companion website with extended examples of best practice taken from real case studies in primary schools. Throughout there is an emphasis on critical and reflective practice.
New to this edition: -
- New chapters on drama, geography and history
- Completely rewritten introduction to account for advances in creativity research and practice
- International dimensions and examples included throughout
- New companion website with extended examples of best practice.
