Innovative Teaching and Learning in Primary Schools

Innovation in the classroom is about empowering teachers to develop intelligent, creative and effective teaching methods that will challenge and engage learners. Drawing on contemporary research and case studies from the UK and internationally, this book examines the theory behind innovative teaching and learning and its practical application in primary schools. Reflection points throughout the chapters encourage self-evaluation and development, giving students greater confidence to plan and deliver their own innovative teaching. Topics covered include: creative approaches to learning in primary and early years education; using different settings and technologies to develop thinking skills; promoting positive classroom behaviour and inclusion; and innovation in planning and assessment.
