The Cubic Curriculum

Synopsis

International education expert Ted Wragg puts forward a novel and highly imaginative view of the school curriculum as a preparation for the uncertain and complex world of the 21st century. The Cubic Curriculum argues that not only are subject knowledge, skills and the development of personal qualities important, but that the teaching and learning themselves are a central part of the curriculum.

Wragg presents a unique view of the curriculum as a three-dimensional cube, with subject matter, cross-curricular themes and issues that influence children's general development, and teaching methods all interlocked. He discusses each of these issues and brings the model together in order to analyze what is happening in the classroom today.
