Here's a comprehensive look at how an integrated curriculum can work for your school or district. Using what she calls a new "Story Model," the author helps you make sense of the changes involved in integrating your school's curriculum. She gives you the tools you need to create a curriculum that takes into account the complexity of today's world and how all knowledge is interrelated. Your students will benefit from integrated curriculum by: Developing a higher level of thinking Transferring their learning to the real world Acquiring the skills they need to become lifelong learners This book helps answer these crucial questions about learning in your school or district: 1. What is worth knowing? 2. How can we know when a student knows it? 3. How do students learn best and what does this mean to teaching? Once you've answered these questions, you'll have a better idea of what curriculum changes you need to make. Drake shows you how (and when) to integrate your curriculum. She offers you detailed descriptions of several different, workable approaches. The information she gives you is applicable for district use as well as for individual schools or departments. Designed for school leaders, curriculum developers, and curriculum supervisors, this book brings integrated curriculum into sharp focus and helps educators find a curriculum model that can work for their school's particular needs.

Go beyond the regular curriculum with these units to challenge your more able intermediate grade math students. With their ease of use, clear instructions, and motivating topics, these are the perfect enrichment activities for the regular math curriculum. This book contains four units that are structured so that students can easily develop an understanding of the topics on their own. The four topics are: permutations and combinations, tessellations, line drawings, and graphing. Each unit provides sequential activities that allow students to work through these motivating topics, whether they are working by themselves, in a small group, or in a whole-class setting. The units lend themselves easily to a math center arrangement with each student having an individual folder and checklist to record his or her progress. While they were designed to provide added challenge for students who have mastered the regular curriculum, some of the units can be used as supplements for whole-class instruction. The emphasis in these units is on promoting thinking, developing perseverance, expanding students' view of mathematics, enjoying a challenge, and keeping math students actively involved and enthused about math. This book will help you provide students with opportunities to explore mathematical ideas in ways that promote their intellectual growth and expand their views of mathematics.
