Integrative Education: Empowering Students To Learn.
OSSC Bulletin, v40 n1 Sep 1996
Integrative education, although organized around curriculum, also unites people and activities. This monograph explores the integration of people, activities, and subject matter as seen through the eyes of those who support and implement the meaning and processes of integrative education. In chapter 1, scholars and trainers in and out of academia offer expertise and experiences gained from their scholarly pursuits and action research in schools around the country. Chapter 2 identifies leadership and administrative tasks necessary to encourage and support integrative education. Teachers excited about implementing integrative education share their experiences in chapter 3. Finally, chapter 4 presents implications of and possibilities for policy on integrative education. Findings are based on interviews with a total of 11 educators--teachers, principals, professors of education, and staff-development or curriculum coordinators. A bulletin-in-brief on integrative education is included. (Contains 31 references and 1 table.) (LMI)
