Do you want to cultivate independent learners through an integrated curriculum? Schramm uncovers the theories behind the design of an integrated curriculum and provides a practical framework for implementation. After discussing the necessity of staff development strategies, appropriate text sources, alternative assessment strategies, leadership, and organizational strategies, she provides classroom-tested sample curriculums and discusses various successful teaching strategies.
A nice blend of theory and practical suggestions...Teachers and administrators who are interested in exploring integrated instruction will find the specific strategies offered useful in planning their own units.
