Abstract

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

* examining the ways in which teachers have managed the National Curriculum and developed a new professional discourse in response to government pressures

This book is a sequel to Creative Teachers in Primary Schools (Open University Press 1995) and builds upon this work to provide new insights into the art of teaching.
