Written in response to the Excellence and Enjoyment agenda by a star-studded cast of educationalists, the book demonstrates that the more fun you're having, the more you'll learn and want to learn. The focus is on creativity, using a variety of creative expressions - storytelling, dialogue, play, poetry and song - showing how they can be best used for teaching children today. Each chapter opens with a different genre, such as story, which is then underpinned by research and theory and expanded into resources for activities supported by case studies. This is an essential book for all teachers, especially those who struggle with using forms of creative expression to enhance their students' learning.
Roy Leighton, Tim Harding, Steve Bowkett and Trish Lee are an experienced group of educationalists whose focus is on using creativity to promote learning.
