Abstract

The article examines the notion of integrated studies as a way of organising curriculum in schools. Drawing on insights of educational philosophy, curriculum theory and learning theory it establishes the soundness of the theoretical case for integration. It examines what this view means for the art and scienc of teaching, and notes examples of successful integration in schools. The paper identifies the roots of integrated studies in the thinking of the Plowden Report and suggests that the approach is equally valid today.
