Published in 1994. Integrating cross-curricular themes into the curriculum has emerged as a major challenge for all schools. What is their relevance to the specialist subject teacher? How can the hard-pressed teacher ensure their coverage through the statutory programmes of study and statements of attainment? How does a school ensure that each pupil's experience makes sense – across the curriculum, at any one time, and in the course of time? How can a school link with partners in the local community to enhance cross-curricular work? This challenge remains as National Curriculum content and procedures are streamlined. 

Primary and secondary school teachers will find here a book filled with practical suggestions from a wide range of subject-specialist viewpoints. These highlight opportunities for developing economic and industrial understanding (EIU) and economic awareness through work in the other cross-curricular areas, through the National Curriculum core and foundation subjects and through other areas of study. Whatever the shape of the National Curriculum in years to come, this book and its companion volumes provide – for heads and deputies, teachers engaged in curriculum coordination and delivery, school inspectors, advisers, initial teacher trainers, INSET providers and those in the community – a wealth of ideas to embed cross-curricular issues into the whole school and its curriculum.
