Description

This practical book shows teachers how to work collaboratively to weave authentic learning tapestries where content knowledge and diverse understandings are drawn from one subject discipline and used to enrich others. It offers simple ways to build on the four principles of inquiry, innovation, identity, and integration to form a creative framework for delivering curriculum. The book introduces ten comprehensive, planned projects that integrate curriculum areas, and encourage students to see different perspectives; think critically and imaginatively about ideas; work with new materials; and represent their knowledge in precise and profound ways. Based on Kathy Lundy's extensive classroom experience, this timely new book suggests meaningful ways for the entire education community to work together to deliver a curriculum that is relevant and engaging.
