Development and Evaluation of Integrated Curriculum

Integrated Curriculum is a topic not fully understood or implemented. Curriculum in most schools is solely departmentalized. Teachers, need to raise the bar on students learning standards, by providing them with developmentally appropriate classrooms. This should be done through the use of integrated curriculum. This not only allows teacher connection within the school, it also provides awareness as to what is happening within the classrooms. Implementing integrated curriculum also requires the students to relate to real life experiences, while providing connecting themes of learning within the school system. Integrated curriculum broadens a child's learning scope, allowing them to connect and relate from classroom to classroom. The focus is on the benefits of integrated curriculum, while attempting to diminish the hesitations that many people feel towards this topic.
