Literacy and community: developing a primary curriculum through partnerships

There is current pressure on schools to design a curriculum that will answer to local needs and foster firmer links between school, homes and communities. This book describes projects which take a broad view of literacy and build on children’s home, community and cultural experience as a starting point for learning. Covering a range of topics and presenting case studies of classroom, whole school and local authority projects, contributions are drawn from schools in metropolitan boroughs, suburban and rural settings, describing collaborations which see children, family members, carers, teachers and other members of the school community as partners in furthering children’s achievements. 
This book is also now available as an e-book from the NIACE website here.
