Cross-disciplinary studies

The formal or informal integration of materials from one or more courses into a single, new course. American studies, for example, may, depending on the particular college, integrate into a single course of study the literature, history, sociology and political structure of the United States. At the elementary and high school levels, crossdisciplinary studies, or SUBJECT CORRELATION is a primary goal of TEAM TEACHING. Team teaching coordinates the curriculum and weekly lesson plans in each grade so that the materials studied in every subject relate to the materials in every other subject. Thus, a study of ancient Egypt in history would correlate with a study of hieroglyphics, the study of the origins of language in language arts, the study of plane and solid geometry in mathematics, the study of mechanical advantage in physics and the study of perspective in art.
