Applying Cross-Curricular Approaches Creatively Paperback
Part of the Learning to Teach in the Primary School Series series
Applying Cross-Curricular Approaches Creatively explores the relevance and effectiveness of cross-disciplinary and project-based teaching.
With a focus on personal reflection and discussion, it offers educators inspiration, guidance and resources to deliver a truly integrated curriculum creatively.ï¿½ ï¿½Exploring how we can make connections in the classroom through our own lives and those of our children, it supports teachers in becoming more personally involved in decisions about the style of teaching and substance of curriculum in schools.
Applying Cross-Curricular Approaches Creatively examines key topics such as:ï¿½ ï¿½ Educationalists with an interest in cross-curricular and creative approachesï¿½ Planning for and provoking creativityï¿½ ï¿½ Choosing cross-curricular themesï¿½ Mind-full approaches to teaching and learningï¿½ Assessing creative and integrated learningï¿½ Teachers as researchers in the classroomï¿½ ï¿½ Applying Cross-Curricular Approaches Creatively is an essential text for those wishing to plan a coherent curriculum with cross-curricular elements.
It places the 'basics' of knowledge, genuine motivation, engagement andï¿½ participationï¿½ at theï¿½ core of its argumentsï¿½ for meaningfulï¿½ learningï¿½ forï¿½ all children.ï¿½ Filledï¿½ with autobiographical accounts and case studies, and with ready-to-use ideas for creative lessons, thisï¿½ upliftingï¿½ book challenges us to return to curriculum breadth and balance and away from a `one-size-fits-all' approach.ï¿½ ï¿½ï¿½ ï¿½ ï¿½
