What does it mean to teach English creatively to primary school children?
Teaching English Creatively demonstrates the potential of creative teaching to develop children’s knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes. Underpinned by theory and research, it also offers informed and practical support to both students in initial teacher education, and practising teachers who want to develop their teaching.
Illustrated by examples of children’s work, this book explores the core elements of creative practice in relation to developing engaged readers, writers, speakers and listeners. Creative ways to explore powerful literary, non-fiction, visual and digital texts are offered throughout.
Stimulating and accessible, with contemporary and cutting-edge practice at the forefront, Teaching English Creatively includes a wealth of innovative ideas to enrich literacy practice.
