Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Although Barnes shows how the principles for cross-curricular learning are based on research it is a very practical book...This book would be a very valuable source of ideas for discussions with the teaching staff'
-Dennis Fox (Nottinghamshire Association of Governors), Governing Matters

'Inspiring, engaging and thought provoking, this book represents a rich professional resource for principled and reflective educators who want to develop a holistic, values centred approach to learning. Packed with creative examples and young people’s voices as well as intriguing visuals, this highly accessible yet scholarly text is a real gem' -
Teresa Cremin, Professor of Education,
The Open University

'Barnes gives an overview of educational policies that refer to cross-curricular learning. In this new edition, this chapter has been enriched immensely by incorporating recent reports, such as the Rose and Alexander reviews...another one of the many strong features of this book (and why it would be enormously suitable for Teacher Trainees and CPD working parties) are the 'Key questions for discussion''
-Rene Koglbauer, Learning and Teaching Update
