Integration of the Curriculum
Across the Disciplines


The shared model brings two distinct disciplines together into a single focus. The shared methodology overlaps concepts as the organizer.

In this shared approach to integration it is necessary that the teachers of the two disciplines plan their teaching which will take place in the individual classes together.

The two members of this "partnership" (possibly cross-departmental) plan the unit of study by focusing on common topics, concepts and skills. As the "team" identifies these commonalities, they identify overlaps in content.

The partners should examine what concepts and skills the topics and unit(s) have in common.
