Background For Teachers:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Set a soccer ball on the floor and stare at it. When someone asks you what you are doing, tell them that you are playing soccer. If no one asks, wait until someone says anything at all and say, “Shhhh, I'm doing something.” Then they'll ask what you're doing. Of course they will make some sort of argument. Launch into a discussion about what else you would need to do to play soccer.
Lewis, V. K., & Shaha, S. H. (2003). Maximizing learning and attitudinal gains through integrated curricula. Education. 123, 537-547.
Three studies were done comparing integrated curriculum versus single subject curriculum. It was shown that integrated curriculum was significantly better for learning and student attitude. Students were engaged, cared about the lesson subjects, and were able to retain learning better. Three different subjects were used during the study.
