Journeys of Discovery: Integrating topics in a classroom environment introduces an exciting approach to implementing an integrated curriculum.
The authors use the story form model as a framework for teaching social education topics in a co-operative classroom environment. The model encourages teachers to see lessons as good stories to be told; by placing content in context children become fully engaged and learning becomes more
The five units presented in this book offer a series of practical integrated activities which develops the story around a central topic. The topics are:
* The Environment
* Exploring a Local Community Through Time
* Discovering Gold
* Native Americans
* A Colonised Country: Papua New Guinea
The curriculum focus is clearly indicated for each activity and a suggested time-frame will assist teachers with their planning and presentation.
The topics in Journeys of Discovery are often explored in the upper primary classroom; however, the framework can easily be applied to other topics and age levels.
