This paper reports the findings of a case-study to explore how pre-service teachers’ conceptualisations of Education for Sustainable Development were mediated using the picture book The Tin Forest (Ward and Anderson, 2001) and the dramatic inquiry pedagogy The Mantle of the Expert (Bolton and Heathcote, 1999) to contextualise a programme of cross-curricular teaching interventions facilitating links between sustainability, the humanities and arts, within a series of science workshops.
Findings indicate when teacher educators model to pre-service teachers the use of a cross-curricular approach to pedagogical design (Brown and Edelson, 2003) and curriculum-making they demonstrate there are multiple ways of knowing and presenting curricular content to facilitate a diversity of responses from pupils as artists, poets, creative writers, makers, musicians, dancers, scientists, mathematicians, stewards and guardians.
