This is a really helpful book which encompasses a lot of the key topics covered in the module.
We have an essay based on this topic and this book has proven a popular source for students to support their writing and practice.
We suggest a wide variety of books to our primary UG BAITT students and our PGCE students. this is one of them. It is clearly set out, easy to access and relevant to a number of subject areas.
A supportive text book that enhances the students perspective of creativity. From the start the book explains the concept behind creativity and ways to support this in the setting. my students find it initally difficult to be creative and to let go with their creative side. This text book allows the student to think about how to do this and gives some ideas for them to start with. A lovely book.
A sound text to explore ideas of creativity across the curriculum. Useful to engage students in thinking 'outside the box' when developing teaching and learning activities to stimulate children's minds
At last - a book about 'creativity' which addresses this seriously. Creativity in the context of Mathematics and science is treated properly. It is just a shame that each chapter is not longer, as these two subjects alone are both overdue a deeper exploration.
Really useful book with provocative questions.
This is a great book and really helpful to inspire practitioners to be more free flowing with creative pedagogy than didactic. Brings a fresh and progressive perspective into contemporary working in schools
