Out on a Limb on Our Own: Uncertainty and Doubt Moving from Subject-Centered to Interdisciplinary Teaching.
Meister, Denise; Nolan, Jim, Jr.
Teachers College Record, v103 n4 p608-33 Aug 2001
Examined how high school teachers made meaning of a change process involving teamwork, interdisciplinary teaching, and block scheduling. Document analysis, observation, and interview data indicated that uncertainty and doubt were the pervading themes and had a critical effect on the teaching team's ability to move to interdisciplinary teaching. The project lacked teacher input, professional development, written curriculum, and administrator leadership. (SM)
