Breakthrough Chinuch | Evaluated Learning Experience
The Integrated Curriculum (EDU303)
35 hours (13 weeks).
November 2018 - Present.
Upon successful completion of the course students will be able to: summarize and evaluate key principles and theories related to the “integrated curriculum” approach and its implementation in the Montessori curriculum; explain and analyze the importance and value of creating a meaningful integration of Judaic and general studies; and integrate and apply these concepts in classroom instruction to promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and active engagement in learning.
This is a study of a curriculum model for teaching general studies within Judaic studies. This model greatly differs to the traditional and common curriculum structure in Jewish day schools of complete separation between the two. This model incorporates Montessori’s philosophy on cultural studies with principles of the integrated curriculum approach and provides practical knowledge for blending content areas and sensorial activities for the various units of study. Prerequisite: Teaching experience or instructor approval.
In the upper division baccalaureate degree category, 3 semester hours in Montessori Education or Early Childhood Education (11/18).
