One of the keys to a happy and creative classroom is getting out of it and this book will give you the confidence to do just that. Drawing on academic research, Juliet explains why learning outdoors is so beneficial and provides plenty of tips and activities to help you to integrate outdoor learning into your teaching practice, providing a broad range of engaging outdoor experiences for your students. There is no need for expensive tools or complicated technologies: all you need is your coat and a passion for learning - oh, and you'd better bring the kids too! Topics covered include: forest schools, learning outside the classroom, outdoor education, nature activities, caring for the environment, play in schools, investigative play, urban outdoor activities, problem solving, creative thinking and strategies for supporting curriculum objectives. For all primary practitioners who want to shake up their usual classroom routine and discover the benefits of teaching outdoors. Dirty Teaching was a finalist in the Non-Fiction People's Book Prize Winter 2014 collection.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dirty Teaching recognizes that the most effective way to embed teaching and learning in the outdoors is not to create huge quantities of resources but to plant seeds so that teachers can grow their own ideas. Easy to dip into for inspiration but also compelling to read as a narrative that engages and informs in equal measure." -- Juno Hollyhock "Executive Director, Learning through Landscapes"
