February 2007 | 144 pages | Learning Matters
Creativity is increasingly seen as central to good learning and teaching throughout the curriculum. This book examines the political and educational context behind such developments and looks at dilemmas faced by trainee teachers as they begin their teaching practice. Demonstrating what creativity is, how it evolves and how it can be nurtured in various teaching contexts, it enables trainees to develop creativity in their teaching role and in their pupils' learning. Throughout, the book links clearly to the new Professional Standards for QTS and presents exercises, subject-based case studies and teaching examples to engage and support all secondary trainees.

"An excellent book for secondary trainee teachers" (Senior Lecturer, St Mary's University College)


Relevant for offering ways of adapting teaching in the classroom; has been used by students looking at going into secondary education and has also helped my practice as an FE lecturer. The content is very promising indeed.

The book provides an insight of how to develop practice in a secondary education field. Especially useful for youth workers working in a school environment.
