1.What is curriculum integration? Why?
Beane, J. (1995:616):

sources of curriculum
ought to be
problems, issues, and concerns
posed by life itself.”

4. How to design an interdisciplinary curriculum?***
“...education that is organized in such a way that it cuts
across subject-matter lines
, bringing together various aspects of the curriculum into
to focus upon
broad areas of study
. It views learning and teaching in a holistic way and
reflects the real world
, which is interactive.”

Essential components of an integrated curriculum
Core skills and processes.
These include basic skills, such as reading and mathematics, as well as social skills and problem solving.
Curriculum strands and themes.
These are the organizing principles around which the curriculum is built. They are broad-e.g., Human Societies-and integrate content from multiple areas.
Each curriculum strand is further divided into major themes, e.g., Environments or Diversity.
Questions are used to further define major themes and focus activities.
From the major theme and the questions, knowledge, and skills related to the concepts, teachers plan activities that will lead to the development of knowledge and skills which will answer the questions. Teachers also collect resources and develop actual lesson plans and assessment strategies.
Through an assessment of student progress the unit is evaluated.
Types of Curriculum Integration:
Parallel discipline design
Multi-disciplinary (Complementary) design
