Pedagogical content knowledge and the sequence of learning

Curriculum Pedagogy
When it comes to great teaching and pedagogy, the sequence of learning trumps everything – and our new goal is pedagogical content knowledge. Ben Harding offers some insights into what this means in the classroom and school
