This chapter is about the curriculum that you teach. As a beginning teacher you are likely to be given an outline curriculum for each year group or perhaps an examination syllabus, thus, topics are set. However, you are able to decide how that curriculum is implemented, for example, through how long you spend on each aspect of the curriculum, how deeply you explore each topic, your use of examples or through setting project and homework tasks that extend the core curriculum.
