Social Sciences Senior

TOPIC“Multidisciplinary Integration In The Social Sciences"

Target Audience: Senior High Social Sciences Teachers

Presenter(s):  Bradley Miller, Rector All Saints Anglican Parish, Lashanti Jupp, Lavoie McKenzie,

EO Perlene Baker, Mr. Glenward Bain

DESCRIPTION:    

There are various types of integration used and these include multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary approach, intradisciplinary integration and transdisciplinary integration.  Multidisciplinary approach reviews standards from various objectives that are organized a specific theme.  Integration connects subject matters such as science, social science, mathematics and language arts.  According to Wall & Leckie (2017) it involves experiences, social interaction, knowledge and curriculum design. McNulty et al. (2005) suggested that teachers have to review curricular guides to identify which skills are to be mastered by students and how to present the information within a topic. One way to allow this transition is to determine curriculum integration in subject matters.

 

The workshop will encompass these four approaches where real experiences will be highlighted and social interaction takes place with the visit at the courts.  Added to this, an Economics Teacher will share on topics that are taught in History, Geography and Civics. Teachers will also visit the Courts on Nassau Street to observe real life experiences. This observation will enhance project based learning in the curriculum guides.  As part of curriculum design, thematic approaches will be discussed along with technology integration.
