What is the role of the individual school 'subject' and 'subject teacher' within school? Is it to teach a set of core subject knowledge, skills and understanding in a way that remains faithful to long-standing subject cultures and pedagogies? Or is there another way to consider how the curriculum and the notion of individual subjects and teachers' pedagogy could be constructed? Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School ... English brings together ongoing debates about personalised learning, creativity and ICT in education to establish a clear theoretical framework for cross-curricular teaching and learning in English and literacy. Presenting an appropriate pedagogy for cross-curricular teaching that draws on this framework, it promotes radical new approaches to English teaching as part of a widened curriculum through practical examples and theoretical discussions, blended with engaging stories of current practice. With links to other curriculum subjects and current education policy, features include: theoretical examination of key issues; assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of different curricular models; clear principles for effective assessment; a wide range of case studies; summaries of key research linked to suggestions for further reading; professional development activities to promote cross-curricular dialogue. Part of the Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School series, this timely, interdisciplinary textbook is essential reading for all students on Initial Teacher Training courses and practising teachers looking to holistically introduce cross-curricular themes and practices in secondary English teaching.

What is the role of the individual school 'subject' and 'subject teacher' within school? Is it to teach a set of core subject knowledge, skills and understanding in way that remains faithful to long-standing subject cultures and pedagogies? Or is there another way to consider how the curriculum, and the notion of individual subjects and teachers' pedagogy, could be constructed. Working from the key principle that there is no curriculum development without teacher development, Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School argues for a new, skilful pedagogy which embeds an authentic, cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning in the work of the individual teacher. This approach respects and builds on individual subject cultures, embracing and exploring links between subject knowledge and subject pedagogies in an enriching way. Drawing on examples and case studies taken from innovative practices in different schools and subject areas, as well as summarising lessons from key pieces of research evidence this book includes: Clear theoretical frameworks for cross-curricular processes of teaching and learning A lively account of key issues blended with engaging stories of current practice An analysis of the use of language, ICT and assessment as key components of a skilful pedagogical practice that affects how teaching is delivered and how pupils learn in cross-curricular contexts Practical tasks and questions for reflective practice This timely textbook is essential reading for all students on Initial Teacher Training courses and PGCE courses as well as practising teachers looking to holistically introduce cross-curricular themes and practices in their own subjects.

Mathematics Education with Digital Technology examines ways in which widely available digital technologies can be used to benefit the teaching and learning of mathematics. The contributors offer their insights to locate the value of digital technology for mathematics learning within the context of evidence from documented practice, prior research and of educational policy making. Key pedagogical uses of digital technologies are evaluated in relation to effective mathematics learning and practical ideas for teaching and learning mathematics with digital technology are critically analysed. The volume concludes by looking at future developments and by considering the ways in which ICT could be used as a catalyst for cross-curricular work to achieve greater curricular coherence.

Excellent mathematics teachers make a major difference to the learning outcomes of the students they teach. What are the professional skills and knowledge that really matter? Teaching Secondary School Mathematics is a research based introduction to the professional knowledge, attributes and practices needed to teach mathematics well at secondary level. The authors explain the challenges that secondary mathematics teachers face today, and how they can build on the experiences students bring from primary school and from outside the classroom to ensure students develop concepts and skills in mathematical thinking and a positive attitude to mathematics. They outline the secondary mathematical curriculum and methods of assessment, and examine the pedagogical strategies teachers can use to engage student interest in mathematical concepts. They emphasise the importance of working with mathematical reasoning and problem solving, real world applications, and mathematical communication skills. The core mathematical topics covered at secondary level are reviewed, and the authors also explore the issues teachers need to consider with students of diverse backgrounds. 'I highly recommend this book to practising mathematics teachers as well as pre-service teachers. The combination of research and practical teaching ideas ensures current and worthwhile advice for teaching secondary or middle school students.' Dr Judy Anderson, The University of Sydney 'An excellent book - very readable, interspersed with useful tasks which are grounded in attending to effective classroom practices. A much overdue resource for initial teacher preparation courses.' Associate Professor Glenda Anthony, Massey University
