Mary Myatt, author of High Challenge, Low Threat and The Curriculum: Gallimaufry to Coherence
A Curriculum of Hope provides a considerable contribution to the debate surrounding curriculum. With razor sharp clarity, Debra Kidd identifies a number of problems with some wide-ranging -˜umbrella' topics in the primary phase and proposes a clear rationale for developing content and concepts thoughtfully through threads. Debra makes the case that we need to ensure knowledge is utilised in ways that make learning effective for more than simply passing tests. She also provides some excellent examples for thinking about coherence across subjects in secondary schools.
Beautifully crafted and packed with insights, A Curriculum of Hope adds another dimension to the discussion about what it means to create a connected, compelling curriculum. -‹
