The school curriculum is a contested arena. There are competing pressures from those who advocate that it should be constructed on a subject specific basis, whereas at the other end of the continuum is the stance taken by this book, that learning, and especially learning in the arts, can transcend artificial boundaries between subjects. This book sets out a case for cross-curricular learning involving the arts in secondary schools. Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School...The Arts argues for the development of a new, skilful pedagogy which embeds an authentic, cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning in the work of the individual teacher. Teachers are empowered to think about creative pedagogies, and pupils are able to engage in deep learning as a result. Key features of the text include: theoretical examination of key issues curriculum planning materials and resources a wide range of case studies drawn from innovative practise frameworks for assessment and evaluation. Part of the Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School series, this textbook breaks the boundaries between curriculum subjects and the arts. It is timely reading for all students on Initial Teacher Training courses as well as practising teachers looking to introduce cross-curricular themes in their own subjects.

Advancing Equity and Achievement in America’s Diverse Schools illustrates how educators, students, families and community partners can work in strategic ways to build on social, cultural, and ethnic diversity to advance educational equity and achievement. By drawing on the latest data on demographic change, constructions of culture and cultural difference, and the politics of school reform in urban, rural, and suburban school communities, this volume looks toward solutions and strategies for meaningful educational improvement. Contributors consider both the diversity of youth and families served in public schools, and the culture of U.S. schooling, highlighting the influence of policy and reform agendas; students’ identities and agency; experiences and approaches of diverse educators; and the workings of effective school partnerships. Chapters also focus on those often overlooked in educational scholarship such as Native Americans, students experiencing poverty and/or homelessness, Muslim students, students with special needs, and students and educators who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, or queer. In all, this edited collection stresses the need for high quality education that is inclusive, culturally responsive and unifying so all students can experience academic success. This book is a meaningful resource for educators, policymakers, and community-based leaders interested in doing such transformative work.

A lot of enthusiasm exists for the idea of teaching for understanding - a concept that portrays teachers as guides, coaches, and facilitators of student learning. But what does it really look like in a classroom? And how do we get there? In this book, leading experts on teaching and policy research provide concrete illustrations of what teaching for understanding entails. They show how, for example, to foster the knowledge, capabilities and professional beliefs essential for teachers moving beyond a "teach and test" approach to analytic reflection on classroom life and their relationship with students' learning. And they describe the collegial relations and institutional arrangements that support or inhibit the process of teachers and students working together in developing knowledge. By highlighting the central issues for practice, policy, and research, the authors explain how diverse institutions - legislatures, state departments of education, schools of education, districts, teacher organizations - can work together to promote and support teaching for understanding.

"Initial teacher education continues to elicit strong views and contested prescriptions, with judgements made increasingly on the basis of international comparisons. Against this background of educational debate and polemic, there is a need for insights gained from research-based qualitative accounts of the processes and practice taking place in high-performing institutions and contexts. Teacher Education and Pedagogy combines critical discussion of transformative processes of teacher education policy and planning with fine-grained analysis of effective practice"--Book cover.

Global Issues in Education bridges the discourse on globalization and education with international studies on race, class, gender, ethnicity, culture, and multiculturalism. The contributors to this volume address educational challenges of post-colonial Ghana, the United Arab Emirates, the Caribbean, China, and Germany juxtaposed against Western education in the United Kingdom and the United States. They synthesize macrosociology with educational research, which provides readers with the background, core knowledge, and global focus that is needed to understand international issues, as well as deal with diversity in the classroom. Global Issues in Education also addresses the need for additional research that makes the connections between the geopolitical economy and education, and it does this with a focus on the link to culture, ethnicity, and education.
