Brain research shows that connected learning is a more sustainable model of learning. For teachers, teams, and schools trying to integrate curricula, Fogarty describes 10 different models and explains the best uses of each model in this updated edition of How to Integrate the Curricula. This resource presents the ten models with examples and reproducibles that educators can use as they plan their own integrated curricula, and stresses two important factors-meeting standards and designing instruction suited to the way students learn best.
