Book Description

Using a cross-curricular approach, Wiegand discusses the knowledge necessary for preparing children for life in a pluralist society. Looking at theories of education for citizenship, environment education and economic and industrial understanding, it examines the evidence for what children know and feel about their own country, other countries and people in "distant" places. He offers practical suggestions for curriculum planning and classroom activities in the primary school and examines ways in which project work on different localities can be initiated and developed.
