Integrating Curriculum within and across Subjects. Missouri's Framework for Curriculum Development.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
The "Show-Me Standards" as detailed in this guide are comprised of 33 performance (process) standards and 40 knowledge (content) standards. The performance standards include important process skills and the knowledge standards provide a solid foundation of knowledge in communication arts, fine arts, health and physical education, mathematics, science, and social studies. Missouri's Framework for Curriculum Development provides districts with a "frame" for building curricula using Show-Me Standards as a foundation. District curriculum guides furnish the interior curricular plan and appropriate instruction. This guide provides teachers with information and strategies for integrating the curriculum described in each separate framework. The five sections cover: (1) what curriculum integration is; (2) how to get started; (3) development of integrated units, projects, and activities; (4) reasons for integrating the curriculum; and (5) assessment of student performance.
