Learning to Teach in the Primary School Series


About the Series

The Learning to Teach in the Primary School Series offers support and ideas for student and practising teachers, enriching their knowledge, understanding and pedagogic experience in relation to creative teaching and learning. Packed with imaginative ideas and practical suggestions, the books are underpinned by theory and research to help teachers develop more creative approaches to teaching and to successfully engage their students with the subject. Theoretical perspectives from both the particular subject domain and field of creativity are included throughout to widen teachers’ knowledge and increase the contemporary relevance of the texts. The books highlight the importance of developing children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, as well as their attitudes and engagement in learning, while references to relevant research help to inform teachers’ own research and writing for initial teacher training and professional development purposes.

The series complements the textbook Learning to Teach in the Primary School, edited by J. Arthur and T. Cremin, but the books are also able to stand alone. They reflect the evolving nature of subject teaching in the primary school and profile the integration of the core curriculum into a wider, more creative, primary curriculum.
