9781446255421: Creative Teaching in Primary Science

Creative teaching has the potential to inspire deep learning, using inventive activities and stimulating contexts that can capture the imagination of children. This book enables you to adopt a creative approach to the methods and content of your primary science teaching practice and confidently develop as a science educator.

Key aspects of science teaching are discussed, including:

  • planning for teaching and learning
  • assessing primary science
  • cross-curricular approaches
  • the intelligent application of technology
  • sustainability education 
  • outdoor learning

Coverage is supported by illustrative examples, encouraging you to look at your own teaching practice, your local community and environment, your own interests and those of your children to deepen your understanding of what constitutes good science teaching in primary schools.

This is essential reading for students on primary initial teacher education courses, on both university-based (BEd, BA with QTS, PGCE) and schools-based (School Direct, SCITT) routes into teaching. 

Dr Roger Cutting is an Associate Professor in Education at the Institute of Education at Plymouth University.
Orla Kelly is a Lecturer in Social, Environmental and Scientific Education in the Church of Ireland College of Education.

About the Author:

Dr. Roger Cutting is an associate professor in Education at the Institute of Education at Plymouth University in England. He has a background in science research, but also has wide and complimentary experience of teaching science at many levels across the primary, secondary, and tertiary sectors. Now at Plymouth University, he contributes to a range of courses with particular emphasis on science education and sustainability, and has recently been awarded a number of teaching fellowships and nominations for teaching excellence. He is program leader for the Masters in Learning for Sustainability and is an active member of the Learning Outside Formal Education (LOFE) research group. He is also a research fellow for the Centre for Sustainable Futures.

Review:

′This book combines argument and evidence about the importance of creativity in teaching and learning with ideas for classroom activities that go beyond the usual run of science topics. Yet these experiences are essential if we are to achieve the aims of developing thoughtful young people who care for the environment and for their own and others’ well-being.′ (Wynne Harlen)
