Creativity is often thought of as being related to the arts however this book explores creativity in all areas of the curriculum. The case studies are particularly useful as the outline highly imaginative lessons that have been used in other schools. The reflective tasks featured in each chapter are a great way of getting you thinking how you could implement different strategies in the classroom.

)With my degree being in musical theatre, it is easy for me to incorporate arts into the school timetable, but have been wary about introducing such creativity in other subject areas. This book provides great insight into how to include creativity throughout the whole curriculum. A great read!

The success of the book is proven by the fact this is the third edition; it retains key material and has been updated and revised to include two new chapters - the theme of the creative curriculum and supporting trainees to see how effective curriculum design can enhance creative teaching. An excellent way to refresh established teaching and bring in new ideas which will delight children. With plenty of good examples, this gives lots of food for thought and motivation to extend creativity. (Parents in Touch)
