This lively, thought-provoking edited collection is packed full of practical ideas for teachers looking to foster a creative primary classroom. It will also make its readers reflect on how creativity and geography intersect in children’s lives and why creativity is vital in sustaining all our futures. Professor Anna Craft, University of Exeter and The Open University, UK. Teaching Geography Creatively offers an innovative approach to geography education in the primary classroom, and is crammed full of practical approaches for bringing the teaching of geography to life. With ideas for exploring physical geography, human geography and environmental issues, it is a stimulating and enjoyable source of inspiration for all training and experienced teachers. Underpinned by the latest research and theory and with contemporary, cutting-edge practice at the forefront, expert authors from schools and universities explore the inter-relationship between creativity and learning and how creativity can enhance pupils’ motivation, self-image and well-being. The importance of equipping children for a rapidly changing environment and the need to place learning in a values context are also stressed. Imaginative ideas for teaching in geography include: games and starter activities as entry points for creative learning; learning about the environment and sustainability through problem solving; linking geography with art, music and mathematics; using the local area for map work, history and ICT; new approaches to fieldwork, playful learning and outdoor work; exploring ‘messy learning’ and real world events. With an emphasis on promoting creativity as a key element to developing young children’s knowledge, understanding and enjoyment, Teaching Geography Creatively offers a range of practical strategies to enable teachers to take a fresh approach to geography teaching.

'This book brings together the traditions of historical enquiry and geographical enquiry. At its heart is the belief in children's capacities to be enquiring historians and geographers, enabling them to develop a sound base of historical and geographical knowledge and understanding' - Lynne Dixon, Senior Lecturer in Primary Humanities, University of Greenwich 'This book successfully combines theory and practice: it helps the reader to make sense of different perspectives of theories of learning related to these subject areas. It is therefore useful to both classroom practitioners and students alike. Readers will certainly be able to identify elements useful to their needs' - Emily Rotchell, Senior Lecturer in Primary Geography, University of Roehampton Providing a broad and balanced overview of the teaching of history and geography, Primary Humanities: Learning through Enquiry is indispensable reading for all primary teacher education students wishing to develop their understanding of teaching humanities subjects. Using an enquiry-based approach that encourages children to learn through questioning and investigating , it combines theoretical coverage with practical examples to provide an informed, engaging guide to humanities teaching in the primary classroom. Key issues covered include planning and assessment in history and geography, using resources in teaching, and exploring creative and cross-curricular approaches in humanities. This is essential reading for all students studying primary history and geography on primary initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT, School Direct), and employment-based routes into teaching, and NQTs. Tony Pickford and Wendy Garner are Senior Lecturers at the University of Chester. Elaine Jackson is formerly Chief Adviser (Primary) Trafford BC and Primary Headteacher.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
