"Strangely Familiar": Authentic Experience, Teacher Education and a Thought-Provoking Environment
Barnes, Jonathan
Improving Schools, v8 n2 p199-206 2005
In the light of the government's Excellence and Enjoyment primary strategy, the current emphasis on well-being arising from Every Child Matters and recent moves by the QCA, Creative Partnerships and OFSTED to promote creative thinking, and cross-curricular and thematic approaches in Key Stages 1, 2 and 3, teacher education is looking again at childcentred and experience-based learning. The article reports on insights from a recent crosscurricular arts project in Kent which can be applied to any environment near your school. (Contains 3 figures.)
