Learning From Experience

World Studies in the Primary Curriculum


In our shrinking world there’s a real case for world studies throughout the curriculum, yet many teachers feel the curriculum is so heavily loaded that there is no space left for it. This book aims to show how the teachers of primary subjects in the National Curriculum can be helped and enhanced through World Studies perspective.

The book is packed with tried and tested activities, accompanied by well worked out strategies for assessment and evaluation. There is also a rationale for teaching World Studies that teachers will find useful in their discussions with colleagues and parents, and a range of good resources is listed.

The book is the result of intensive research into whether active group work and discussion-based activity contributes to the development of attitudes, skills and values in children in tune with being a global citizen. It contains lots of useful material.
