9780415324151: Creativity in Schools: Tensions and Dilemmas

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.

Review:

'Original, thoughtful and thorough' - The Times Educational Supplement

'Anna Craft has written an important and challenging book on the increasingly important topic of creativity in education.'Youth and Policy 

'The book is well written and authoritative with sometimes difficult subject matter in a clear and accessible style.' Youth and Policy 

'The editors present a concise and well researched theoretical background to each topic drawing on established perspectives and knowledge in a very readable style that will appeal to educators generally. Overall, I found the book a useful, informative and interesting scan of the field. It was also a most enjoyable read.' - British Journal of Educational Technology Vol 38 No 1 2007 171–183

‘Complex, controversial and comprehensive.’Teachers College Record

‘Engaging and provocative, insightful and stimulating...with a message for researchers and policy makers, teachers and students, experts and novices...highly recommended.’Thinking Skills and Creativity

'This thought-provoking treatment of the subject is well worth inclusion in teacher education programmes and debates for both primary and secondary teachers, as well as being a valuable addition to the literature on creativity in schools.' - Educational Review
