Researching children researching the world: 5x5x5=creativity

Edited by Susi Bancroft, Mary Fawcett and Penny Hay £16.99

Researching children researching the world will appeal to a wide readership including teachers, preschool workers, artists, colleagues in cultural centres, researchers, managers, advisors, policy makers, parents and older students in schools and colleges. It is an important text for those studying for Foundation degrees, B.Ed, PGCE, Masters programmes and NVQs. There is a dearth of information for artists working in educational settings and this book offers valuable information to museums, galleries and theatres.

Visually exciting, multi-layered and rich in information, the book considers:

- the philosophical framework, based on valuing children as competent creative learners

- the context and history of the approach

- case studies and adults' and children's stories of transformative learning

- the practical framework of the collaborative researchful practice

- integrated working in partnerships

Mary Fawcett: Learning Through Child Observation (2nd Edition) July, 2009 Jessica Kingsley Publishers
The first edition of Mary’s handbook on observation came out in 1996. Now the fully updated second edition draws on insights from colleagues in 5x5x5=creativity as well as her other professional work with social work and early childhood studies. The book is intended for everyone who is engaged with children and young people working within the Every Child Matters agenda. Observation is in some ways a simple and everyday idea yet at the same time it is complex and deeply interesting. Learning Through Child Observation aims to help colleagues gain a greater understanding of how children make sense of their worlds and how they express themselves through the hundred languages. Observation, reflection and documentation are essential elements of this process and through these activities adults learn about themselves as well as about children.
