Educators design classroom curriculum based on academic standards for their academic content area. This class guides teachers to understand and implement content integration through demonstrations with both literacy and history. When educators are prepared to teach using an integrated approach to learning, students benefit as they receive instruction that is more substantive. The Academic Standards for Reading, Speaking, Writing, Listening and Social Studies will be reviewed and educators will be expected to apply them to specific lessons in the content area in which they teach.
