Focusing on the core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science, the book addresses the political agenda in which the core curriculum takes place, and provides practical information and guidance on teaching the three subjects. The book briefly traces the history of these core subjects, examines what is meant by 'curriculum knowledge', takes apart the classroom and educational issues before offering advice on handling curriculum change and tackling new approaches to teaching. It helps teachers develop their skills through enquiry tasks, case studies, questions and suggested further reading.
