An integrated thematic unit


Theoretical and historical background l.jpg
Theoretical and Historical Background

John Dewey (1913): “. . . Education comes only through

willing attention to and participation in school

activities. It follows that the teacher select these

activities with reference to the child’s interests,

powers, and capacities.”

James Mursell (1956): “Integration has to do, not primarily

with subject matter, but with people and their lives.”

Lev S. Vygotsky (1962) = “Each person must construct

his or her own reality . . . construction should always

precede analysis.”

Conceptual or

Process connections

Common to various disciplines:

“Knowing how a process functions in one discipline

can enhance the student’s understanding of how

it functions in another.” (Wiggins, 2001)

Verbal literacy =

Listening + Speaking

+ Reading + Writing

Musical understanding =

Performing + Creating +

Listening

(Deriving meaning; more

than mere decoding)

(A deep understanding;

More than mere note-reading)


Process connections continued l.jpg

(Science/Kinder) Compare and sort common objects by one physical attribute.

(Science/Gr. 4) Differentiate among types of rocks by referring to their methods of formation.

(Math/Gr. 1) Describe, extend and explain ways to get to a next element in simple repeating patterns.

(Language Arts/Gr. 4) Compare and contrast tales from different cultures by tracing the exploits of one character type.

Compare and sort common instruments by one physical or aural attribute.

Differentiate between musical textures by referring to their methods of formation (e.g., fugues, homophonic forms)

Create, perform and describe simple rhythmic and melodic patterns.

Compare and contrast music from different cultures by tracing the musical treatment of one instrument type.

Process connections (continued)

Other discipline

Music

  • Have clear instructional goals, based on the state standards, for your students.

  • Maintain the integrity of each discipline.

  • Provide opportunities for the students to clearly see the cross-disciplinary connections.

  • The connections must be concept or process oriented.

  • Always consider Bloom!


Start with essential questions l.jpg
Start with “Essential Questions” physical attribute.

Have no obvious right answer

Raise other important questions

Address the philosophical or conceptual foundations of a discipline

Recur naturally

Are framed to provide and sustain student interest!

Write an “Essential Question for each CONTENT area that “connects” to the others


So let s see some examples l.jpg
So let’s see some examples: physical attribute.

http://edweb.sdsu.edu/courses/edtec596/Units/UnitIndex.html

  • Decide:

  • Are the units Interdisciplinary (or thematic)?

  • Do they offer authentic connections?

  • What are the “big ideas” the writers are attempting to address?

  • What are the essential questions?


Can we talk l.jpg

  • In a small group, answers these questions: physical attribute.

    • Are the units Interdisciplinary (or thematic)?

    • Do they offer authentic connections?

    • What are the “big ideas” the writers are attempting to address?

    • What are the essential questions?

  • At the end of the time, regroup and write a ONE-DAY interdisciplinary unit on…

Can We talk?
