Raising Attinment through Pupil Engagement - a report of an experiment
An action research project which took place in primary schools across Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire Councils, in partnership with the Creative Learning Networks and Hidden Giants. The experiment asked the following questions:
We wanted to know how creativity could enhance pupil engagement in the primary school classroom.
We wanted to better understand what occurs when pupils take an active role in proposing, developing and deciding the focus and practicalities of their own learning.
Additionally we wanted to explore how teachers react and respond to enhanced pupil agency.
