Curriculum Resources is a special collection of teaching resources for education students to borrow. It contains books and other materials on all subjects to help with lesson planning and use whilst working with children in the classroom (mainly primary level).
The collection is held on floor 2 (west wing) of Augustine House. Education students may borrow up to 20 items from here in addition to their normal library borrowing allowance. Students based at Broadstairs, Salomons and Medway can request items from Curriculum Resources to be sent to their home site.
You can find all curriculum resources by searching LibrarySearch.
