This book is based on the principle that if UK trainee teachers have an awareness of what creativity is and how it is developed then they can develop creativity in themselves and their pupils. Creativity in Primary Education therefore has two goals: to describe creativity and inform trainees of its theoretical background; and to demonstrate how these ideas might be put into practice in the classroom. To promote what might be considered best practice, the book will give examples of case studies from current research, outlining how this practice is underpinned by theory. With contributions from leading UK experts, the book will not only concern itself with subjects which might be deemed 'traditionally' creative/expressive, such as music and drama, but will seek to explore creative approaches across a range of curricular areas, making links between them where appropriate.
