The introduction briefly describes the structure of the PACE consortium. Discussed next the nature and objectives of curriculum integration, benefits of curriculum integration to students and teachers, and the link between curriculum integration and tech prep. The various models and types/levels of curriculum integration are outlined, and three model projects/programs in curriculum integration from the PACE consortium are discussed as possible integration models.
