Cross-curricular science

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Cross-curricular teaching is a familiar concept - but what does it actually mean? For the purposes of this chapter we suggest using Barnes' (2015) definition of cross-curricular learning: 'when the skills, knowledge and attitudes of a number of different disciplines are applied to a single experience, theme or idea, we are working in a cross-curricular way'.
    This chapter outlines approaches to cross-curricular teaching that demonstrate how science can support other subject areas - such as maths and literacy - and consider how Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) can integrate into cross-curricular teaching.
