Applying cross-curricular approaches creatively
Barnes, J. 2018. Applying cross-curricular approaches creatively. London Falmer/Routledge.
This book uses fragments of autobiography and aspects of current research in neuroscience, psychology and pedagogy to argue for more and more well-planned cross-curricular approaches in primary education. It uses Barnes' (2015) taxonomy of cross-curricular approaches to support teachers and curriculum designers in generating engaging and creative learning in the classroom. It 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. Exploring 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 substance of curriculum in schools.
