There are powerful case studies, including examples of pupils' work and talk, and teachers' reflections. A companion website contains further examples. Chris Rowley and Hilary Cooper bring together a group of practising teachers and university tutors who offer suggestions on cross-curricular approaches to teaching, keeping values education at the heart. This book will be invaluable to practising primary teachers, student teachers and all those involved in curriculum design. Chris Rowley is in the Faculty of Education at the University of Cumbria and is a Member of the Geographical Association and SAPERE, The Society to Advance Philosophical Enquiry and Reflection in Education. Dr Hilary Cooper is Professor of History and Pedagogy at the University of Cumbria Ambleside Campus

Including chapters on the theory and development of Philosophical Inquiry, the creation of a community, and using CoPI with groups of different ages, this book forms essential reading for teachers, professionals and community workers.
