Attack! 33 The ‘feeling for’ approach to social studies: it can be transformative Part 1

Welcome to ATTACK! 

ATTACK! is a two-page occasional publication giving attention to the curriculum – the holistic curriculum.Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 8.59.21 AM

ATTACK! is for you, also to introduce to your colleagues. Each issue will be restricted to two pages. A cover graphic for a file or folder to store ATTACK! issues is available.

Most of ATTACK! will be concerned with the holistic curriculum which, if acted on, is a fundamental way to undermine the present undemocratic education system. Don’t be discouraged if opportunities to teach holistically are limited, do your best, be a guardian, and act as a witness to this culturally significant and inspiring way of teaching and learning.

    This is great. I’d love to hear your thoughts on ‘Inquiry Learning’.

    Will do. I am very pleased with this Attack! and the ones to come. The response in schools will be mainly indifferent or even hostile, largely I think, because the system has come to accept there is only one way to do things. Perhaps that acceptance has something to do with playing safe, survival. I do not blame schools or feel slighted – it’s all of a parcel. In a way, I’m writing for the future and as a personal statement – take it or leave it is my overall attitude. I look at how, for instance, the Treaty is taken now, and just raise my hands and say – so be it, I’m just one voice. I can only do so much – produced superb, authentic resources and a beautiful way to use them – now I’m letting schools know all that is there if they want it.
