How to Integrate the Curricula free pdf "This book should make educators stop and consider exactly what they mean when they discuss curriculum integration" -Julie Prescott, Assessment Coordinator Vallivue High School, Caldwell, ID "The biggest strength of Fogarty's work is its clear, concise organization centered on the guiding questions of each chapter" -John C. Baker, Eighth-Grade Social Studies Teacher, Salem Middle School, Apex, NC For both students and teachers, the mission is essential: to connect ideas, discern themes, and thread skills of various content areas into a cohesive whole. Yet, the question remains: "What does integrating the curricula really mean?" The answers are provided in this updated resource that helps teachers create brain-compatible, learner-centered classrooms and better prepare students for lifelong learning. Based on a four-pronged rationale for using an integrated curriculum-including findings from brain-based research, parental concerns, practitioner challenges, and student perspectives-Robin Fogarty offers ten models that allow teams of teachers to work together to group elements from various content areas into a coherent curriculum that effectively meets standards. The discussion of each model includes: - A description of the model - How the model can be applied in the classroom - Benefits and challenges of the model for teaching and learning - Guidelines for when and how to implement the model in the classroom - A wealth of reproducibles to aid implementation How to Integrate the Curricula offers the support educators need to integrate concepts, skills, and attitudes and immerse students in content through self-selected, personally relevant learning experiences.
