Integrating the Curricula: A Collection.
Fogarty, Robin, Ed.
In response to the search for ways to create forms of schooling that are more holistic and natural, and more integrated and interwoven, this collection of articles pulls together elements of the multifaceted concept of curriculum integration. Divided into six sections, the chapters explore the reasons and rationale for moving toward more holistic models of learning, place the concept of curriculum integration in a historical perspective, and present practical models for planning an integrated curriculum as well as case studies of actual school programs. The chapters also explore the subtleties of the integration process, and present the divergent views of teachers and students. The chapters are: (1) "Integrated Learning for a Competitive Work Force" (R. Kolde); (2) "Understanding a Brain-Based Approach to Learning and Teaching" (R. Caine and G. Caine); (3) "The Interdisciplinary Challenge: Connection and Balance" (R. Cummings); (4) "Curriculum Integration: A Critical Analysis of Practical and Conceptual Ideas" (A. Relan and R. Kimpston); (5) "Getting Unstuck: Curriculum as a Tool of Reform" (A. Lewis); (6) "The Resurgence of Interdisciplinary Studies" (J. Gaff); (7) "Problems and Possibilities for an Integrative Curriculum" (J. Beane); (8) "The Integrated Curriculum" (H. Jacobs); (9) "Integrated Curriculum in Historical Perspective" (G. Vars); (10) "A Comparison of Traditional and Integrative Approaches" (B. J. Shoemaker); (11) "Ten Ways To Integrate Curriculum" (R. Fogarty); (12) "Education 2000 Integrated Curriculum" (B. J. Shoemaker); (13) "Projects as Curriculum: Under What Conditions?" (T. Webster); (14) "Connect Your Curriculum" (A. Foster and others); (15) "Cross-Curricular Connections" (J. Maute); (16) "Bringing It Together: Literature in an Integrative Curriculum" (J. L. Smith and H. Johnson); (17) "How Our Team Dissolved the Boundaries" (S. Drake); (18) "Explorations of Teachers' Development of Integrative Curriculums" (N. Gehrke); (19) "Refocusing Advisories, Thematically" (M. James); (20) "A Caveat: Curriculum Integration Isn't Always a Good Idea" (J. Brophy and J. Alleman); and (21) "Students' Perceptions of an Integrated Unit" (B. Mansfield). (HTH)
