A highly practical overview of creative teaching and learning for both novice and seasoned primary teachers; this second edition features useful content on the new National Curriculum in England, such as possibilities for creativity in different subjects and consideration of creative assessment. In a nutshell, super-accessible and inspiring!
Did not receive this book
This was a well written text that explores what is an interesting topic.
This is an excellent up to date text book which is very useful for any student aiming to provide a creative curriculum. It features clear curriculum links, theory and practical examples. The book is accessibly written and an excellent resource.
To support trainee primary teachers' work on their cross-curricular modules
This book is extremely interesting, both from the point of view of the teacher and also how to embed creativity throughout teaching and learning. The individual activities, examples and opportunities for reflection were very useful. The chapter of case studies has, however, the potential to be prescriptive- teachers have a tendency to focus on such 'schemes' and this has the potential to actually reduce creativity as they do not adapt these ideas for their own contexts.
Good clear examples of creativity in the classroom. Students appreciate the guidance for lesson planning.
I like the 'generic' components of this book. For a teacher new in the classroom the consideration of the culture of the classroom; groupwork; personal and social aspects; and the role of the teacher are sensible and clear.
I think teacher modelling could feature more prominently as a technique.
My main recommendation is to include MUSIC in the list on page xv 'subjects and skills reference table'.
Engaging exploration of creative pedagogies.
Very useful text for explaining the role of creativity
