Conclusion And Forward Planning

The intention of this book was to give an insight into the different facets of creativity in the primary school classroom – the children’s growing creativity, the teacher’s use of creative activities and planning, and the application of the key elements of creativity into teaching and learning in different subjects. Hopefully it has also stimulated a desire to be a more creative teacher and to create learning environments and situations for children where they can be creative and develop their own creativity. Making this happen in practice will require more than just having read this book; the following section gives some guidance as to how to proceed and forward plan to make those changes in your practice.
