Ch 9: Integrated Learning in the Classroom

About This Chapter

Our Integrated Learning in the Classroom chapter illustrates how skills taught in one class can be applied in another. See how you can implement integrated learning in your classroom through these brief but informative video lessons.

Integrated Learning in the Classroom - Chapter Summary

For generations, it was the norm to teach math in math classes, writing in English classes, and so on. Life, however, doesn't work that way. Science classes, especially physics and chemistry, rely heavily on math skills, and social studies classes require well-developed reading skills. Use these lessons to explore the advantages of applying skills across content areas. The videos include the information shown below:

  • Definition and advantages of an integrated curriculum
  • Features that characterize an integrated learning program
  • How to incorporate skills and content across curricula
  • How to choose and differentiate integrated learning methodologies

These lessons are written by teachers and presented by instructors who are experts in their fields. You can contact them through our ask-an-expert feature if you have questions. The short lesson quizzes will help you better understand the concepts presented here, and a comprehensive chapter exam aids you in assessing your knowledge.

How It Helps

  • Promotes flexibility: In an integrated learning atmosphere, students learn to apply reading skills beyond English class, technology knowledge in many classes and mathematics to science and other content areas.
  • Demonstrates real-world applications: An integrated approach to learning answers the perennial 'What am I going to do with this?' question that many students ask by demonstrating practical applications of the material.
  • Enhances student performance: By implementing an interdisciplinary approach to the acquisition of skills, you can give your students opportunities to gain practice and reinforcement.
