Is there an ‘ideal’ primary school curriculum? Who should decide what the curriculum is? Should teachers have autonomy over how they teach? The curriculum is the heart of what teachers teach and learners learn: effective teaching is only possible with an effective curriculum. Yet in spite of its importance, there has been a crisis in curriculum that has been caused in large part by governments assuming direct control over the curriculum, assessment, and increasingly, pedagogy. Creating the Curriculum tackles this thorny issue head on, challenging student and practising primary school teachers to think critically about past and present issues and to engage with a new wave of curriculum thinking and development. Considering curriculum construction and its impact on teaching and learning in the four countries of the UK, key issues considered include: who should decide the curriculum, its aims and its values the extent to which issues in primary education swing back and forth Subjects versus thematic organisation, stages and phases, progression, breadth and balance prescription versus teacher autonomy the key features of effective classroom practice strategies for assessing the whole curriculum how language in the classroom influences curriculum design understanding curricula in the context of children’s social and personal circumstances creativity, curriculum and the classroom. Illustrated throughout with strategies and case studies from the classroom, Creating the Curriculum accessibly links the latest research and evidence with concrete examples of good practice. It is a timely exploration of what makes an effective and meanginful curriculum and how teachers can bring new relevance, motivation and powerful values to what they teach.

During almost thirty years in the special education field, Diana Katovitch has sometimes been frustrated when her students do not reach their potential as adults. Her new book, a guide to postsecondary education (PSE) opportunities and vocational and life skills training, is her answer to making sure they do. THE POWER TO SPRING UP makes it clear that education and learning after high school are both possible and beneficial for students with significant disabilities, giving them better job opportunities and more fulfilling lives. Designed for students ages 14 and up with a variety of disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders (ASD), Down syndrome, and cerebral palsy, their families, advocates, and secondary school professionals, this guide offers an excellent overview of PSE programs available today. Beginning with the transition planning phase, Part One discusses the benefits of various programs and what special education law does and does not support as children move into adulthood. Part Two profiles a dozen specific programs to show the many different types of options, ranging from a modified academic program on a university campus, to a vocational residential program designed specifically for students with special needs. Readers learn what to look for and which kind of program is best suited to their child's or student's abilities. Part Three offers nitty-gritty advice to students, parents, and teachers on preparing for the demands of postsecondary education – everything from learning about and practicing self-advocacy skills and financial planning, to the application process and how to support a child while he or she is attending a PSE program. Not only does the author provide important practical information and guidance, she also inspires families, giving them renewed hope in their child's future and the possibilities for him or her to continue learning and gaining independence into adulthood.
