It is widely believed that a child's imagination ought to bestimulated and developed in education. Yet, few teachersunderstand what imagination is or how it lends itself topractical methods and techniques that can be used easily inclassroom instruction. In this book, Kieran Egan winner ofthe prestigious Grawemeyer Award for his work onimagination takes up where his "Teaching as Story Telling"left off, offering practical help for teachers who want toengage, stimulate, and develop the imaginative and learningprocesses of children between the ages of eight to fifteen. This book is not about unusually imaginative students andteachers. Rather, it is about the typical student'simaginative life and how it can be stimulated in learning, how the average teacher can plan to achieve this aim, and howthe curriculum can be structured to help achieve this aim.Slim and determinedly practical, this book contains a wealthof concrete examples of curriculum design and teachingtechniques structured to appeal specifically to children intheir middle school years."
