Pedagogy and the "Romantic" Imagination
Halpin, David
British Journal of Educational Studies, v56 n1 p59-75 Mar 2008
No one sincerely doubts that schools should take seriously the need to develop children's imaginations and their capacity to be imaginative. The issue is what does this mean? And what are its implications? This paper, which is mostly inspired by the writings about the imagination of two British nineteenth-century Romantic poets--Coleridge and Wordsworth-- provides some answers.
