Real Integration--Where the Rubber Meets the Road
Moye, Johnny J.
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v86 n3 p48-51 Mar 2011
Integration of core academics into career and technical education (CTE) is not new. Putting core academics into context, CTE courses provide an excellent platform for students to learn the relevance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as well as literature, arts, and social studies. Students learn to use this information by applying it to real-world situations. Not only is integration a good idea, it is also a requirement if a school division uses federal Perkins Act funds. A teacher desiring to integrate core academic information into his or her CTE course needs to understand integration as well as what and how to integrate. This article discusses two forms of integration, integrated curriculum and interdisciplinary curriculum. Both terms identify valuable approaches to integration. (Contains 14 resources.)
