Abstract

Targeting students’ learning is at the centre of education. In addition, education is promoted as a solution for addressing various issues; consequently educators seek ways in which teachers can meet societal needs and students’ learning needs, and address the overcrowded curriculum. There are debates on the defi nition of curricula integration and its place in education. However, ationalising the value of primary students undertaking curricula-integrated learning can provide motivation for primary teachers to devise and implement curricula-integrated lessons in the classroom. The Applied Learning Experiences highlighted in this chapter provide practical ideas for curricula integration that focus on combining achievement standards from the Australian Curriculum.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
