Curriculum Integration is a teaching approach that enables students
and teachers to identify and research problems and issues without
regard for subject-area boundaries. Curriculum Integration consists
of the following:
- Organizing themes that are drawn from life experiences, which
allows students to question and engage in real-life issues and
promotes collaboration between students and teachers.
- Learning is no longer segregated into subject areas or a collection
of facts. Students use skills from all disciplines to reseach
personal and global concerns.
- Broad access to knowledge is provided to all students through
learning that is worthwhile, relevant, and allows students of
all backgrounds and abilities to contribute.
Curriculum Integration is not simply about doing things differently,
but about doing something really different.
