Integrating Problem Solving with Theme-based Learning in "The Key Learning Community".
Kalayci, Nurdan; Cohen, Michael R.
Problem solving has been studied extensively for tens of years and is based on a set of generic steps. A content theme is needed for these generic skills to be used and theme-based learning was chosen to be the medium for the project Key Learning Community (KLC). This paper describes the implementation of the problem solving approach into the KLC using theme-based education in one K-12 magnet school in the Indianapolis Public School system.
