Creating Literature to Teach Interdisciplinary Connections

Making connections among particular concepts is not only important within a given subject area, but the significance of interdisciplinary connections is also highly promoted by organizations such as the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and the International Reading Association (IRA). Teacher candidates created children’s books to educate grades 1-6 students about an integrated mathematic and science concept. Some individuals showcased their artistic talents by drawing their own illustrations, while others used digital photography to capture accurate concept ideas. Teacher candidates will showcase their final literature product.
