Threshold concepts

The Gillas Lane non-core curriculum distinguishes between subject topics and threshold concepts. Subject topics are the specific aspects of subjects that are studied. Threshold concepts capture the essence of the most important aspects of a subject and are explored in a wide breadth of topics. Children return to these concepts over and over and gradually build understanding from them.
