Useful to any course delivering a module based around x-curricular and creative curriculums.
A good and interesting book with a variety of ideas and pedadogical support. It addresses the issues of today and gives useful examples and case studies.
This book provides a combination of wider views of and cross curricualr and thematic learning and more focussed practical applications. In its wider views it engages readers in the big issues of cross curricualr and thematic learning and encourages a critical reflection on the values of such approaches. In the more foucssed applications, it does not become a "tips for teachers" book but exemplifies the application of these critical approaches.
Excellent title with a variety of different ideas and pedadogical support. It explores the use of cross curricular activities in such a way that it makes the topic interesting for trainee teachers to follow, apply and experiment in their classes.
Good range of curricular areas used to explore links across the primary curriculum
Good balance of underlying theory and practical case studies for student and practising teachers to engage with and reflect upon for own practice.
We shall certainly recommend both the early years and general primary trainees to read this book as part of our cross thematic short course
This book will be useful for a variety of modules as a supplement to extend and challenge our learners to develop a broader range of viewpoints. I can see it becoming used on a variety of modules and whenever we discuss planning and approaches to planning in my area particularly.
The format of the book is engaging and well- structured to lead the reader through a variety of focus areas.
Well written material from a good range of experts; the theme of cross-curricularity runs through the book but there is a wide variety of useful example and case studies. Good illustrations, diagrams, tables etc. Extensive references at the end of each section. A valuable addition to this area.
