Product description

How can teaching across the curriculum improve children's learning? How can you plan meaningful, imaginative topic work? Cross-Curricular Teaching in the Primary School helps teachers plan a more imaginative, integrated curriculum by presenting in accessible language a rationale and framework for teaching across the subjects. Illustrated throughout with examples of effective topic work in successful schools, this book provides guidance on the underpinning theory and strategies to facilitate cross-curricular work with young children. 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. Cross-Curricular Teaching in the Primary School provides much needed support for busy student and practising teachers. Packed with practical ideas, it offers an accessible guide to all aspects of introducing an integrated curriculum.

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
