This book brings together recent papers which make important contributions to understanding and developing primary geography. It considers primary teachers’ and trainee teachers’ knowledge of geography; how the primary curriculum uses geography; teachers’ planning of geography teaching; the way in which aspects of geography are taught; what high quality geography might look like; and children’s geographical understanding and voices. Though geography curricula change quite often in countries around the world, the core matters noted above remain of constant and vital importance. The papers in this book either concern research with primary teachers and children, or consider key concerns in primary geography, providing important perspectives for thinking about future developments in geography teaching and curriculum initiatives in primary schools. This is a stimulating and enticing collection written by leading exponents of, and experts in, primary geography education. This book was originally published as a special issue of Education 3-13.

Book Summary:

Are you striving to establish a more creative and imaginative classroom? Are you interested in: the generosity of creativity; creative conjecture; being an advocate for creativity; welcoming the unexpected, the unpredictable and the unconventional; taking risks; learning which leads to new or original thinking which is of value? If so, this completely updated new edition of a classic text will show you how to achieve these ideals. The book is written in a clear and practical way by leading researchers and practitioners, offering help and advice on the planning and implementation of effective creative teaching and learning, and providing examples of best practice through a rigorous theoretical rationale. A hallmark of the book is its exploration of creativity through curriculum subjects. It builds on this in its first and last chapters by addressing key cross-curricular themes that thread their way throughout the book. Throughout there is an emphasis on critical and reflective practice. New to this edition are: three entirely new chapters on drama, music and geography; an update of the introduction to account for advances in creativity research, policy and practice; a new final chapter identifying cross-curricular themes; greater attention to international dimensions and examples. In this second edition the authors are drawn from six universities which between them produce some of the best education research internationally, and some of the best teacher education. The authors also come from leading national and international organisations such as the National Gallery in London and the Geographical Association. Creaivity for the Primary Curriculum is a core text for both training and practicing Primary teachers who wish to maintain high standards when approaching their teaching.

Book Summary:

This book is based on the vision that religious education (RE) can be taught creatively, with relevance to the lives of teachers and their pupils today, in predominantly secular society. RE should be taught from the perspective of knowledge and understanding of religions, to foster tolerance and to dispel prejudice and misunderstanding, without any attempt to influence children's personal beliefs. The philosophy which underpins this book is the belief that RE is best taught within an integrated approach to the humanities. The humanities are about what it is to be human, in time and place and in terms of belief. Therefore, RE is linked with history, geography, and the creative arts within five themes: human survival, light and dark, leadership, the environment, and time and motion. As well, there is accurate and detailed subject knowledge about the six major world faiths and plays/scenes about them written and produced in schools by myself. The book is in alignment with the British National Curriculum, which requires that RE is taught in schools, and with the latest Ofsted Report (2010), which states that there is a need for guidance for teachers, and more creative and innovative approaches to link RE with the wider curriculum.
