Education is the business of developing minds for the future, but unlike most businesses we often find that schools fail to co-ordinate learning across all departments and therefore fall short of producing a fully rounded end product.

Lisa's mission is to transform thinking around curriculum and education to ensure that the disparity from one subject to another does not lead to a disparity in young people's understanding and readiness for the future. Learning, Lisa believes, should be co-ordinated across departments and she shows the world how it's done in her new book, Manglish: Bringing maths and English together across the curriculum.

The book shows how maths and English departments can develop creative, cross-curricular approaches to improving literacy and numeracy across the whole school and provides practical ideas and strategies to improve both. Covers: creative teaching, cross-curricular planning, collaboration, collaborative teaching, whole child development, literacy, numeracy and skills development.

For Key Stage 3 teachers across all subject areas, and school leaders with an interest in or responsibility for curriculum planning.
