This book is aimed at those seeking to develop creativity in the classroom. It begins by outlining the key elements of creativity and the background to creativity before moving on to examine how children can be creative in their learning. It then explores how to develop as a creative teacher and foster creativity in the classroom.



It is arranged into simple sections with clear learning objectives. Throughout the book there are highlighted sections which include practical classroom examples of creativity, quick ideas for use in the classroom, as well as opportunities to engage in individual and group activities which consolidate thinking.



The practical examples given are a useful source of reference and the book links these well with key research, pulling ideas together.



From the outset this book appears to be aimed towards a trainee teacher audience with specific references to activities that appear more geared to this stage of career. Despite this, there are definitely ideas and activities that would be useful for any teacher looking to reassess a more formal classroom learning experience.
