Overview

Creative teaching is an art form - aesthetic, intuitive and expressive. The recent proliferation of new educational policies and the related increase in tensions and dilemmas facing schools, combined with the growing demand for a wider range of skills and knowledge among children mean that there is an even greater need for creative teaching than before the National Curriculum. This book addresses this need by exploring the features of creative teaching with a focus on the day to day practice of primary teachers; showing how teachers use emotion, create atmosphere and stimulate imagination to enhance their teaching; and examining the ways in which teachers have managed the National Curriculum and developed a new professional discourse in response to government pressures.
