This third edition explores the key practical and theoretical issues underpinning cross-curricular teaching and learning across the early years, primary education and lower secondary school. Combining findings from research and educational theory with examples of thought-provoking teaching in schools, this textbook discusses how high quality teaching across different curriculum areas can be planned, taught, assessed and used to encourage creative and deep learning experiences.

Revised and updated to reflect current curriculum policy and contemporary research, this third edition includes:

* Coverage of the 2014 National Curriculum in England and the implications for cross-curricular practice

* More case studies from across the curriculum, from different age groups and exploring different aspects of teaching

* Improved coverage of cross-curricular practice in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

MEDIA REVIEWS

We see the world through cross-curricular eyes and as such this book is a wake-up call for educators of all ages to ensure that they think carefully how, why and if cross-curricular teaching is appropriate. Chapter 2's Cross-Curricular Taxonomy, especially, opened my eyes to the differing aims and purposes that might underlie different sorts of cross-curricular planning. Through well-chosen case studies, the pitfalls and possibilities become much clearer so teachers can think through their approaches to the curriculum, therefore teaching pupils better and being true to each subject's unique lens on the world.

This excellent book uses a wide range of research and case study to illustrate the value of cross curricular learning. I believe it is important to ensure prospective teachers engage in debates about planning, teaching and learning and this book effectively challenges the many pre-conceptions of what a primary school curriculum should look like.
