Creativity in the Primary Classroom Book Excerpt:

Creativity is an integral element of any primary classroom. It has been never more important for teachers to involve children in their own learning and provide a curriculum that motivates and engages. Being a creative teacher involves generating new ideas, reflecting upon and evaluating different teaching approaches, and establishing an environment that supports creativity in your pupils. Creativity in the Primary Classroom explores how to develop as a creative teacher and how to foster creativity in your classes. Drawing from key literature and detailed real-life examples, Juliet Desailly puts into practice her extensive experience planning, advising and developing creative approaches to teaching and curriculum planning. This book examines what creativity in a primary classroom can look like, and is supported throughout by practical activities for use across curriculum subjects and reflective tasks encouraging critical engagement with key conceptual issues. This is essential reading for students on primary initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT), and employment-based routes into teaching, and also for practicing teachers wishing to enhance their own teaching. Juliet Desailly, formerly PGCE Tutor in Primary Education at the Institute of Education, London, is a freelance Educational Consultant. 'This book deepens and broadens our understandings of creativity as applied to primary education. It provides a balance of practical frameworks and approaches with wise guidance. Many schools and individual teachers will find Juliet Desailly's work invaluable as they embrace the greater pedagogical and curricular freedoms promised by government.' - Jonathan Barnes, Senior lecturer in Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Teaching Religious Education Creatively Book Excerpt:

Teaching Religious Education Creatively offers a brand new approach for the primary classroom and is crammed full of innovative ideas for bringing the teaching of RE to life. It helps teachers understand what constitutes a healthy curriculum that will encourage children to appreciate and understand different belief systems. Perhaps most importantly, it also challenges teachers to understand RE as a transformatory subject that offers children the tools to be discerning, to work out their own beliefs and answer puzzling questions. Underpinned by the latest research and theory and with contemporary, cutting-edge practice at the forefront, expert authors emphasise creative thinking strategies and teaching creatively. Key topics explored include: What is creative teaching and learning? Why is it important to teach creatively and teach for creativity? What is Religious Education? Why is it important for children to learn ‘about’ and ‘from’ religion? How can you teach non-biased RE creatively as a discrete subject and integrate it with other curriculum areas? Teaching Religious Education Creatively is for all teachers who want to learn more about innovative teaching and learning in RE in order to improve understanding and enjoyment and transform their own as well as their pupil’s lives.
