In this book, Adrian Copping offers an insightful exploration of creativity in the primary classroom and challenges assumptions about this concept. This book encourages the reader to think about the opportunities for developing creative thinking and engagement across different aspects of primary English specifically, but also offers principles of creative teaching across the curriculum. Practical examples and ideas for the classroom enhances the discussion around this concept.
This book is great at exploring how to teach literacy creatively which is especially useful for beginning teachers or those in ITE.
I found it extremely useful for my sessions on encouraging creativity in writing on the BA QTS course.
A very useful text for trainee teachers and others in various stages of their career
This is a much needed 'in depth' look at teaching creatively in the primary classroom. The individual case studies and the reflective passages give opportunities to apply theoretical aspects to classroom teaching practice. There is clear guidance in how to manage the planning elements using national curriculum criteria. The 'further reading' sections at the end of each chapter will take the interested student or busy teacher into more wider aspects of the study. Ideal for the student who wishes to take this subject at an advanced level of study.
