Are there any staff at secondary schools who use this curriculum?

How does it work in your school? How long have you used it? Do you like it?

They are using it in the school I left, I started to plan cross curricular schemes of work using it.

It does all seem a long time ago now, so I am not much use and propbably shouldn't have bothered posting!

I used to work with the people that came up with Enquiring Minds - well worth a look.

Sorry, not about Opening Minds at all, but thought it might be of interest. grin

From looking back I found it quite easy to work with, I think we created the students a passport with the skills on that the students had to have signed. I suspect though that we had our units of work planned and then fit the opening minds stuff around it. The school was one where the students lacked social skills and more general life skils, it was also not very academic so it suited us.
