This work explores creative teachers' attempts to pursue their brand of teaching despite the changes brought about by the National Curriculum. The author has discovered a range of strategies and adaptations to this end among such teachers, including: resisting change which runs counter to their own values; appropriating the National Curriculum within their own ethos; enhancing their role through the use of others; and enriching their work through the National Curriculum to provide quality learning experiences. If all else fails, such teachers remove themselves from the system and take their creativity elsewhere. While acknowledging hard realities, the book is ultimately optimistic. It contributes to educational theory, showing a range of responses to intensification, as well as providing many detailed examples of collaborative research methods.
