Engaging, Interdisciplinary Instruction
Educators who integrate disciplines throughout the curriculum foster student learning as they make correlations in their learning. The correlations promote the relevance of the discipline in a global aspect. When students learn the significance of these connections, engagement increases. Student learning improves when the content is relevant and engaging, and when students feel safe in a well-managed classroom.
