Abstract

Applying Cross-Curricular Approaches Creatively explores and relevance and effectiveness of cross-disciplinary and project based teaching with a focus on personal reflectiondiscussion, 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 and substance of curriculum in schools. Applying
Cross-Curricular Approaches Creatively examines key topics such as:

 Educationalists with an interest in cross-curricular
and creative approaches
 Planning for and provoking creativity
 Choosing cross-curricular themes
 Mind-full approaches to teaching and learning
 Assessing creative and integrated learning
 Teachers as researchers in the classroom

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 and participation at the core of its arguments
for meaningful learning for all children. Filled with autobiographical accounts and case studies,
and with ready-to-use ideas for creative lessons, this uplifting book challenges us to return to
curriculum breadth and balance and away from a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.
