This book brings together ongoing debates about personalised learning, creativity and ICT in education, with a cross-curricular focus, and establishes a principled framework for cross-curricular teaching and learning in Modern Foreign Languages. It identifies a range of key issues and constructs a research-based pedagogy with practical steps for students and teachers as they consider how cross-curricular approaches can be implemented.
Key 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
This timely 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 foreign language teaching.
