Implementing curriculum integration: three easy lessons from past practice

Dowden, Tony (2012) Implementing curriculum integration: three easy lessons from past practice. Set (Wellington) (3). pp. 25-31. ISSN 0110-6376

Abstract

This article presents three 'lessons' from the legacy of past examples of curriculum integration (CI) in Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ) to assist teachers who wish to utilise CI as a curriculum design for supporting inquiry learning pedagogies. These lessons reflect an innovative vitality that has long been characteristic of NZ teachers and, given that the extant literature of CI is often silent on practical matters contained within these lessons, this legacy from our past is likely to be valuable to teachers anywhere who have the desire to implement CI.
