Teachable Moments: The art of creative teaching in primary schools.
Buckingham: Open University Press.
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.
