This four-volume series sets out to describe and discuss cultural diversity and the whole curriculum from a variety of perspectives and to consider how the concerns of ethnic groups can be addressed within the framework of the National Curriculum. This, the second volume, brings together writings of specialists in the key components of both the whole and basic curriculum. It considers the implications of cross-curricular concepts which are comprised, according to the National Curriculum Council (NCC), of dimensions, skills and themes.
Divided into three parts, Part I considers the overall area of cultural diversity and a range of cross-curricular aspects of the curriculum; Part II looks at five major cross-curricular themes specified by the NCC; individual awareness, careers education and guidance, health education, education for citizenship, and environmental education; Part III covers seven cross-curricular dimensions which merit special attention: racism in British education, personal and social education, a black perspective, gender issues, children with special educational needs, European Community understanding, cultural differences and staff development and accountability, and local management of schools. This book is intended for: heads of education, curriculum studies and multicultural studies departments, BEd and MEd students, PGCE students, LEA administrators and policy makers, ethnographers and special needs advisers.
