Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines The Goshute Tribe - Section 4: Writing - Compare/Contrast and Paraphrase


If you have read some of my previous lessons, I am sure you have heard me say this before.  Please forgive me for repeating myself.  This is my first year teaching in a Spanish Immersion program.  I teach two 4th grade classes each day. The other half of the day the spend with the Spanish teacher.  I am responsible for the English and math core as well as social studies, health, music, and art. for both classes.  This literally gives me half a day to teach everything except science and Spanish.  Integration has become a necessity.  I have always tried to integrate when I can, however, in the past, I have had worked in teams where we found rotations to be useful for the non tested subjects.  I no longer have that option.  Since integration has become a necessity, I wonder why I didn't do more of it long ago.  It makes more sense.  Not only to the students but to me as a teacher.  These subjects affect each other. To teach them in unison only brings deeper meaning to each of these subjects.  If you haven't done much subject integration, I would highly recommend it.
