Overview

This updated resource offers ten models that allow teachers to work together to create learner-centered classrooms by grouping elements from various content areas into a coherent, standards-based curriculum.

Designed to help you see how to diminish the barriers between different subjects, this book provides a spectrum of inventive approaches to curricular integration. Ten models are presented, ranging from the traditional fragmented model to those that connect, sequence, nest, share, web, thread, integrate, network, and immerse one in curricular integration. It`s an essential tool to help students see the exciting connections between the things they learn.
