What might capture a Year 7 student’s imagination? Are there any peculiarities or distinctive elements that you could use to engage them early on in their studies with you? Capturing and maintaining a student’s interest is a prerequisite for effective teaching and learning. We believe that the majority of children are naturally curious about new things and you should seek to build on this in your teaching. Additionally, do not fall into the trap of thinking that the only learning a student will do within your subject is within your classroom sessions.
QCA, 2005) The QCA promotes the use of technology as a force for change in developing a curriculum fit for the twenty-first century. It is clear from recent QCA statements that such ‘joined-up curriculum thinking’ should be a priority as teachers not only seek to develop teaching skills but also the more general development of students’ creativity, thinking skills, ability to communicate and ability to collaborate. We will return to this work in Chapter 5 when we consider how ICT can help us teach creatively and teach for creativity.
Both of these concerns may be legitimate, but try and resist this kind of pressure. Teaching creativity must acknowledge that creativity itself is not limited to specific subject domains. In learning to teach creatively you will have to make connections across the curriculum in such a way that empowers you as a teacher to teach your subject in a new way, perhaps even in ways that you were not taught yourself! Incidentally, this will also create a more inclusive curriculum and educational environment for students, as we will consider in Chapter 6.
