Abstract

What does it mean to teach English creatively to primary school children?

How can you successfully develop pupils’ engagement with reading and writing skills?

Teaching English Creatively demonstrates the potential of creative teaching to develop children’s knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes. Underpinned by theory and research, it also offers informed and practical support to both students in initial teacher education, and practising teachers who want to develop their teaching.

Illustrated by examples of children’s work, this book explores the core elements of creative practice in relation to developing engaged readers, writers, speakers and listeners. Creative ways to explore powerful literary, non-fiction, visual and digital texts are offered throughout.
