This fascinating collection of international research offers fresh perspectives on children's creative processes and the expression of their creative imagination through dramatic play, stories, artwork, dance, music and conversation.
Drawing on a range of research evidence from innovative educational initiatives in a wide variety of countries, Exploring Children's Creative Narratives develops new theoretical and practical insights that challenge traditional thinking about children's creativity. The chapters, written by well-respected international contributors:
offer new conceptual and interpretive frameworks for understanding children's creativity
contest conventional discourses about the origins and nature of creativity
challenge the view that young children's creativity can only be judged in terms of their creative output
explore the significance children themselves attribute to their creative activity
argue the need for a radical reappraisal of the influence of the sociocultural context on children's creative expression
discuss the implications of this research in relation to teacher education and curriculum design.
This broad yet coherent compilation of research on creativity in childhood is essential reading for students, researchers and policy makers in early childhood as well as for Early Years professionals with a particular interest in creativity.
