Book Description

25 Aug 2005 0415324157 978-0415324151 New Ed

Creativity in schools is changing, with greater emphasis being placed on creative skills across the curriculum than ever before. This shift has thrown up some challenging questions which this book tackles head-on in order to better understand the implications of this change and the effects on pedagogy and policy. The questions raised include:

  • What is creative learning?
  • How does it relate to creative teaching?
  • How do we organize the curriculum to nurture creativity?
  • What pedagogical strategies support creativity?
  • How is creative learning different to effective learning?
  • What responsibilities do schools have for stimulating creativity in relation to society, ethics and the wider environment?

Laying out the key concepts in the current debate on creativity and placing them in a broader context based on practice, policy and research, this volume sets the agenda for future discussion and suggests practical ways to encourage pupils’ creative development in a new and more thoughtful way.

By Steve
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At a time when there are many writers vying for our attention on matters of creativity and the associated issue of critical thinking it is refreshing to read a work of great scholarship that has been written in such a lucid and accessible way. The varied notions of creativity and how these have impacted on education policies in nations across the world form the backdrop to this book and this is then integrated with an examination of the relationship between creativity as a part of educational policy and the western capitalist model craving, as it does, constant novelty in order to continue. The book asks teachers examine and perhaps re-examine very carefully their motivation and their methodology as well as their personal philosophy and rationale as they they search for a path of understanding through what is a very complex issue.
