a term used in the 'Teaching for Understanding' movement for  themes or ideas for teaching which have sufficient depth connections and significance to help develop real understanding in learners. However unless learners are involved early on in their development or selection there is a risk of a teacher-centred or -dominated curriculum emerging (see rich tasks).
