Connecting: Getting it Together. Instructional Strategies Series No. 13.
This booklet for teachers offers a variety of strategies and examples from real classroom experiences to facilitate the making of connections across subject areas and ways of learning. The approach is based on a vision of education as enabling students to construct knowledge with teachers assisting them in making a wide variety of connections between the familiar and the new, the concrete and the abstract, across subjects, and between students' knowledge and their values or actions. Booklet sections address planning for connections, using the senses, experiences, holistic thinking, learning styles, student needs, global thinking, the American Indian medicine wheel as a symbol of relationships, attitudes toward change, and metacognition. Throughout the book are diagrams illustrating various concepts, descriptions of actual projects, experiences, and suggested practices from real teachers and classrooms, and possible points for reader reflection or action. Appendixes contain further actual examples from teacher experiences with planning, experience, and learning styles. Contains 10 references. (JB)
