Designing Interdisciplinary Studies Programs. A Project Search Development: The Humanities Series.
Abbey, David S.
This booklet is prepared to help teachers from different disciplines to set goals and to design teaching/learning experiences that span two or more disciplines. Interdisciplinary studies provide students with opportunities and skills to synthesize seemingly disparate facts or events for greater understanding of human concerns. Three specific goals are identified for the reader: (1) to identify opportunities for interdisciplinary planning of programs or exercises; (2) to design interdisciplinary programs, exercises, or courses of study; and (3) to locate additional resources, as required, which will facilitate the prior two objectives. Five chapters cover the following subjects: (1) definitions of interdisciplinary; (2) the pivot discipline; (3) changing the curriculum; (4) teachers as individuals and as team members; (5) objectives and evaluation. A bibliography is included. (JD)
