This third edition explores the key practical and theoretical issues underpinning cross-curricular teaching and learning across the early years, primary education and lower secondary school. Combining findings from research and educational theory with examples of thought-provoking teaching in schools, this textbook discusses how high quality teaching across different curriculum areas can be planned, taught, assessed and used to encourage creative and deep learning experiences.

Revised and updated to reflect current curriculum policy and contemporary research, this third edition includes:

· Coverage of the 2014 National Curriculum in England and the implications for cross-curricular practice

· More case studies from across the curriculum, from different age groups and exploring different aspects of teaching

· Improved coverage of cross-curricular practice in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Editorial Reviews

Anthony Barlow
We see the world through cross-curricular eyes and as such this book is a wake-up call for educators of all ages to ensure that they think carefully how, why and if cross-curricular teaching is appropriate. Through well-chosen case studies, the pitfalls and possibilities become much clearer so teachers can think through their approaches to the curriculum, teach pupils better and be true to each subject’s unique lens on the world.
Marion Hobbs
This excellent book uses a wide range of research and case study to illustrate the value of cross curricular learning. I believe it is important to ensure prospective teachers engage in debates about planning, teaching and learning and this book effectively challenges the many pre-conceptions of what a primary school curriculum should look like.
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

Meet the Author

Jonathan is senior lecturer in Education at Canterbury Christ Church University. He has lifelong interests in music, geography, history, religion and art. These cross-curricular leanings led him first to teach history and geography and the history of art in two Kent secondary schools in the 1970s, then to become a primary class teacher for most of the 1980s. His passion for relevance and engagement in learning led him to devise a ground-breaking interdisciplinary curriculum based wholly on the school locality in the Kent school of which he was head throughout the 1990s.

Since 2000 as a teacher educator, Jonathan has researched links between the ‘science of learning’, cross-curricular and creative approaches and the well-being of teachers and children. He has taught both children and teachers for extended periods in India, Germany, Kenya and Malaysia instituting innovative curriculum projects. In the UK he has worked with national organisations such as English Heritage, Engaging Places, The Victoria and Albert and Maritime Museums in London as well as being a popular speaker on creative and cross-curricular approaches to teaching. He brought together his wide and disparate experience in a ground-breaking autobiographical Ph D entitled, ‘What sustains a life in education?’ He continues to be involved in teacher education and research involving the links between Arts and well-being at Canterbury Christ Church’s Sidney de Haan Research Centre.
