How effective is the international primary curriculum?
a? How creativity promotes learning
Select an aspect of practice which is of interest to you, which will be the focus for classroom based enquiry. Conduct your enquiry during the designated time in school, including collecting relevant field notes on the study where appropriate. Use your Learning Journal to record your reflections on practice.
Write a 2000 word paper supporting your Learning Journal records, providing an analysis of the chosen aspect of practice. You should include in your discussion some evaluation of the theory and research from relevant literature, and how this relates to practice. In the concluding section you should demonstrate clearly the implications for practice and how this study has supported your development as a teacher.
