The most recent calls for integrated curriculum have come for middle school educators. As these links reveal, there are productive undertakings in organizing curriculum by thematic concepts, essential questions, problems, projects, and other means that cause natural overlappings and reinforcement for the disciplines which are often so needlessly isolated from one another. More like what we encounter in lifelong learning, integrated curriculum prepares students to think and create in more lively and lifelike ways.
