Content Section

Cross-cutting themes

Important curriculum content which is to be covered across subjects (or disciplines or learning areas), rather than being taught and learned in one particular subject. These themes can connect programme content across disciplinary boundaries; enrich the curriculum without overloading it through the introduction of additional teaching subjects; and facilitate interdisciplinary thinking and collaborative learning. Examples include human rights, gender issues, peace education, and education for sustainable development.
