Topics covered in the fourteen chapters include childhood, food, sport, icons, politics and body language. The book also helps learners mediate in situations of cultural misunderstanding and start web-based intercultural exchanges. It examines interview techniques, how people present themselves, and ways to interpret cultural symbols and characteristics, such as those found in postcards, advertisements and online newspapers. In engaging with these topics, learners become intercultural explorers and raise their level of communicative competence.This is an invaluable resource for any teacher who wishes to combine language learning with cultural exploration. In addition, the accompanying CD-ROM provides print-friendly photocopiable worksheets and reading texts which can be put to immediate use"--Provided by publisher

This book—a compilation of 25 practical articles from NSTA’s elementary school journal, Science & Children—offers a wealth of lesson plans and idea starters using interdisciplinary, integrated, and thematic approaches. Discover how a language arts unit on survival can include student inquiry into properties of ice, ways to improve students’ observational skills as they write haiku about nature, how to use data collection and math in mapping the ocean floor, and more. To engage students schoolwide or in the great outdoors, several articles offer project-based interdisciplinary units that are widely adaptable. Each article is categorized by grade level, the National Science Education Standards it addresses, and whether it is interdisciplinary, integrated, thematic, or a combination of the three. Even teachers who lack a strong science background will find these concrete techniques especially valuable for teaching science through other subjects (and vice versa).

This is an eminently practical book, which has been written to help all primary school teachers bring IT into the teaching of history in their classrooms. History and information technology might appear at first to be incongruous, but, as Lez Smart shows, both teachers and their pupils can use IT to enhance and increase enjoyment of the learning process and at the same time satisfy the requirements of the National Curriculum. After an introductory overview chapter, the central three chapters demonstrate and develop the uses of IT in primary history teaching through popular topics or historical periods. The final chapter covers logistical considerations such as classroom management, differentiation, access, equal opportunities, progression and continuity. The implications and resonances for IT and history within the overall curriculum framework are also explored.
