The success of the book is proven by the fact this is the third edition; it retains key material and has been updated and revised to include two new chapters - the theme of the creative curriculum and supporting trainees to see how effective curriculum design can enhance creative teaching. An excellent way to refresh established teaching and bring in new ideas which will delight children. With plenty of good examples, this gives lots of food for thought and motivation to extend creativity.
Creativity is often thought of as being related to the arts however this book explores creativity in all areas of the curriculum. The case studies are particularly useful as the outline highly imaginative lessons that have been used in other schools. The reflective tasks featured in each chapter are a great way of getting you thinking how you could implement different strategies in the classroom.
With my degree being in musical theatre, it is easy for me to incorporate arts into the school timetable, but have been wary about introducing such creativity in other subject areas. This book provides great insight into how to include creativity throughout the whole curriculum. A great read!
We have an essay based on this topic and this book has proven a popular source for students to support their writing and practice.
We suggest a wide variety of books to our primary UG BAITT students and our PGCE students. this is one of them. It is clearly set out, easy to access and relevant to a number of subject areas.
A supportive text book that enhances the students perspective of creativity. From the start the book explains the concept behind creativity and ways to support this in the setting. my students find it initally difficult to be creative and to let go with their creative side. This text book allows the student to think about how to do this and gives some ideas for them to start with. A lovely book.
A sound text to explore ideas of creativity across the curriculum. Useful to engage students in thinking 'outside the box' when developing teaching and learning activities to stimulate children's minds
At last - a book about 'creativity' which addresses this seriously. Creativity in the context of Mathematics and science is treated properly. It is just a shame that each chapter is not longer, as these two subjects alone are both overdue a deeper exploration.
Really useful book with provocative questions.
This is a great book and really helpful to inspire practitioners to be more free flowing with creative pedagogy than didactic. Brings a fresh and progressive perspective into contemporary working in schools
