Positive Pedagogy across the Primary Curriculum

May 2023 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This book offers a positive approach to thematic cross-curricular teaching. Within a clear focus on humanitarian and inclusive values, it offers guidance on robust learning in the subject disciplines within a set of highly involving themes. Its fundamental aim is the mental, physical, social and intellectual wellbeing of children and their teachers.

Discover how your teaching can support genuine age-appropriate engagement in contemporary and global issues like shared values, anti-racism, social inequalities and environmental concerns. Learn ways of drawing from a wider, inclusive and motivating curriculum without compromising progression in subject-specific learning.

Case studies and clear guidance on planning and assessment offer strong practical advice to support you in setting the foundations for smart, informed and relevant primary school teaching.
