Integrating Curriculum: A Slow but Positive Process.
Lawton, Ed
Schools in the Middle, v4 n2 p27-30 Nov 1994
Briefly reviews the development of core curricula and interdisciplinary teaming in junior high/middle schools from the mid-1950s to the present. A recent study of 15,000 Maine eighth graders shows that schools using the middle-school, interdisciplinary approach outscored their junior high school peers enrolled in single-discipline subjects by 58 points. Clearly, the integrated approach is effective. (MLH)
