Issues covered include: * how children learn * developing the curriculum and lesson planning * teaching and learning in an integrated way at KS1 and KS * whole school approaches and team teaching for cross-curricular teaching * the role of support staff in cross-curricular teaching * improving children's thinking skills * supporting children with special needs * using new media and drama to facilitate cross-curricular learning * assessing cross-curricular learning.

Review quote

'At a time when cross-curricular teaching is being explored and encouraged in a way that has not happened for a generation, Trevor Kerry's book is not only welcome and timely but thought-provoking and helpful. We should welcome this excellent contribution to the field.' - Professor Mark Brundrett, Liverpool John Moores University, UK, Editor of Education 3-13: International Journal of Primary, Elementary and Early Years Education 'Creative teachers, heads and teacher-educators seeking to offer children the best opportunities for quality, relevant learning, where problem-solving and purposeful thinking are more important than the acquisition of subject-related facts, will welcome this thought-provoking book.' 'The authors use sound historical, theoretical and practical examples to propose an interdisciplinary holistic approach to a pedagogy - underpinned by a professional philosophy - which will benefit all involved in the learning process.' - Pam Dowson, Primary teacher, teacher-educator at the University of Cambridge, UK, and author of The Really Useful Creativity Book 'Brings together the essential principles of a cross- curricular approach and links theory to practice in an accessible format.' - Liz Hunt, Principal Norland College, Bath, UK
