RSA - Area Based Curriculum

RSA - Area Based Curriculum | Secondary school education | Scoop.it

Rethinking the importance of teaching: Curriculum and collaboration in an era of localism

The latest report from the RSA's Area Based Curriculum work addresses the challenge of teachers not only being asked to design curriculum, but to collaborate with local stakeholders to do so. It concludes that while government emphasis on the quality and importance of teaching is welcome, the vision of what a quality teaching workforce looks like lacks ambition. Creative, critical and collaborative professionals are required to meet the challenge of diversity and knowledge in the 21st century, and teachers need to be supported and challenged to develop forms of professionalism that meet this need.
