Cross curricular resources

Recent curriculum reports and evaluations indicate that the development of generic teaching approaches and strategies, such as active learning, differentiation, integration, and assessment are key to effective teaching and learning. In line with these recommendations, the PPDS has devised a variety of resources below to support cross curricular approaches and methodologies.

In addition to these resources, you may find our Publications page useful. Included in this page are editions of our curriculum magazine "Lámha Suas" and articles the PPDS has submitted to the InTouch magazine. These publications aim to support teachers in using a wide range of cross-curricular methodologies and have proved very popular with teachers.
