Lack of time, opportunity, confidence, support or resources often conspire against the curriculum co-ordinator to prevent the achievement of an ideal model. Effective Curriculum Management aims to help.
Topics include: how curriculum co-ordinators can best manage the learning of pupils within the school; how to promote a quality curriculum across all key stages; and factors affecting the wider curriculum, for example IT,differentiation, and using outside agencies.
Written by experienced teachers and teacher trainers, it takes each subject area in turn and examines the areas of knowledge, skills and understanding, teaching styles and learning approaches, with useful summaries and practical advice.
