Double Crossed and Triple Crossed

Developed by the Centre for Science Education and supported by the Astra Zeneca Teaching Trust, the Double and Triple Crossed projects aimed to bring science and history together to increase engagement in science through topic based, contextualised learning.

The project enabled thirteen science and history teachers from secondary schools across Yorkshire and East Midlands to work collaboratively over an academic year, sharing their knowledge and expertise to develop innovative cross-curricular resources. Their aim was to encourage students to form connections between subjects that better reflect the real world, whilst providing opportunities for independent enquiry and discussion. Fourteen classroom resources were designed and trialled in schools.

The rationale behind the project is that the focus in the history curriculum on the development of arguments, the questioning of evidence and the application of thinking and reasoning skills can be used to enrich teaching and learning in science, encourage creativity and provide a context to explore social and ethical issues.
