Summary

This practical resource shows how creative and philosophical thinking can be developed in the everyday classroom. Part one describes the authors evolving ideas and practices of creative and philosophical thinking. Part two gives details about why these are seen as important, how to get going and suggests some ideas on how you might want to develop these practices further. This publication will help you develop: * Playful and experimental thinking outside the box * The ability of your children to pose questions that are important to them and create answers that are reasoned and reasonable * Children's awareness and appreciation of themselves and others as knowledge creators * Children's confidence and ability to challenge their own thinking and the status quo * Children's ability to create options for themselves within constraints and to be open to opportunities * Children's learning to learn about themselves * Teacher's researching to understand and improve their own practice
