This book offers a provocative look at the significant roles that imagination and intuition play in the daily operation of teachers' classrooms. The author explores the idea of creativity in education as it relates to being spontaneous, open, confident, experienced, and familiar. Readers are invited to envision how the classroom comes alive by pondering the themes of "Interaction," "Connections and Context," "Storytelling" and "Emotion—Excitement, Love, and Caring" through the stories of teachers.
Jagla explores ways of fostering imagination and intuition with preservice and inservice teachers and provides ways of encouraging students to use their own imaginations and intuitive processes. The book provides an exciting mix of original anecdotes, literature review, and insightful analysis.
