Teaching for Creative Learning

ByLynn Newton

We have described the nature of creativity in various subjects, some notions of creativity and some ways of supporting it in different subjects in the primary or elementary school. Creativity and problem solving are closely related [Department for Education and Employment (DfEE)/Qualifi cations and Curriculum Authority (QCA) 1999], although teachers may not recognize this relationship, confi ning the word creativity to subjects like art and music, and problem solving to subjects like mathematics and science. The previous chapters have tried to dissolve the artifi cial boundary. This concluding chapter is an appropriate place to bring together some of these thoughts and also add some concerns in order to provide a broader perspective for those wanting to develop creative learning across the curriculum.
