Beyond the Curriculum


This report from 2004 from Sam Twiselton and her team at St.Martin’s College gives a comprehensive look at three categories of teachers; those who keep children busy, regardless of what they are learning; those who deliver externally produced learning; and those who demonstrate a holistic understanding of what they are teaching. With theoretical considerations on knowledge, comments on curricular constraints, conversations with school based tutors and examples from ITE providers and schools, there is a wealth of detailed discussion and practical suggestions here to provoke ideas and enhance practice.
