Subject correlation - American EducationThe simultaneous teaching of two or more interrelated areas of different subjects, such as the history of ancient Egypt and the history of art and languages, or Elizabethan English and Elizabethan history, or algebra and science. Subject correlation is designed to show students the broad framework within which each element of their studies fits. Subject correlation is a major goal of TEAM TEACHING, whereby all the teachers of a particular grade of students coordinate the curriculum and weekly lesson plans so that materials studied in every subject relate to materials in other subjects. Thus, a study of ancient Egyptian history would correlate with language arts studies of hieroglyphics and the origins of written language. Egyptian history would also tie into the study of plane and solid geometry in mathematics, the study of mechanical advantage in physics and the study of perspective in art.
