Four books and a journal- what we published in January!
January's snow has brought a change of scenery for those of us who have been in lockdown. However, it hasn't stopped UCL Press from publishing four new open access books (including two in the major new education series Knowledge and the Curriculum) and bringing you a new issue of Archaeology International (published by UCL Press for the first time!).
Here's what we published in January:
What Should Schools Teach?
Disciplines, subjects and the pursuit of truth
Edited by Alka Sehgal Cuthbert and Alex Standish
What Should Schools Teach? offers an accessible subject-by-subject analysis of what knowledge matters for each school subject and how far school knowledge should be related to academic disciplinary knowledge. With new chapters on Art, Chemistry, Drama, Music and RE, this second edition is an important reference for teachers and policymakers alike. Download open access PDF
