Traveling through the Curriculum: A Method of Holistic Teaching
McArdle, Heather
Science Education Review, v1 n4 p139-145 2002
Reality-based teaching methods involve the meaningful application of knowledge. The goal of this holistic method is to apply knowledge about specific geographical locations to the curriculum. First-hand knowledge of a location enables teachers to constantly address the student question "Why do I have to learn this?" As a result, students are better prepared to associate cultures, subjects, and interests across curricular lines.
