Interdisciplinary Approach- "Unity in Diversity"

  1. 1. “Unity in Diversity” The Interdisciplinary Teaching Approach
  2. 2. Interdisciplinary Teaching Approach involves combining two or more topics, disciplines or subject matter that historically has been taught separately into one class.
  3. 3. Interdisciplinary Instruction •Knowledge-based •Literacy-based •Inquiry-based •Project-based
  4. 4. Bodies of Water Reading Improving reading comprehension by reading literature about different bodies of water Math Measurement: Measuring the length/distance of bodies of water, volume of liquids and density of materials PE Swimming Science Aquatic Ecosystem Water Cycle Filipino Mga alamat at kwentong bayan na naka-base sa mga anyong tubig Hekasi Epekto ng iba’t ibang anyong tubig sa pamumuhay ng mga tao
  5. 5. Integrated curriculum Interdisciplinary instruction Thematic teaching Synergistic teaching Related Terms
  6. 6. ITA Interactions Performance Depth Professional Growth Inquiry Learning
  7. 7. Interactions • acknowledge all levels of abilities • addresses multiple intelligences • offer integration of various subject matter • allows different kinds of interactions (teacher-student, student-material, student-student, teacher-teacher)
  8. 8. Performance • increase motivation; better performance • give meaning-oriented and content-rich classrooms • lessons have wider application
  9. 9. Depth • discover relationship that exist across the areas/disciplines in the real world • develop deeper understanding of the theme/topic • time can be devoted to making choices, reflecting, exploring
  10. 10. Professional growth • “Theme teaching is team teaching.” • support reflective practice and collegial sharing • connect to school/district/state/national standards • articulates teachers’ beliefs about teaching and learning
  11. 11. Inquiry Learning • allow problem-solving • increases student motivation • allow exploration of big ideas • allow time for brainstorming and questioning
  12. 12. Objectives: •explain how energy is transferred in the ecosystem; •make an energy pyramid; •compute the amount of energy available for the trophic levels in an energy pyramid; and, •set their priorities by applying the concept of the energy pyramid.
  13. 13. Review: 3-Level Puzzle First level: Jigsaw Puzzle Arrange the puzzle pieces to complete the picture. Second Level: Jumbled Letters You will identify what is being shown by the picture by arranging the second level which is made up of jumbled letters. Third Level: Jumbled Words You will define the answer from the second puzzle by arranging the third level which is made up of jumbled words.
  14. 14. First Level
  15. 15. Second Level Third Level FOOD WEB a set of interconnected food chains by which energy and materials circulate within an ecosystem
  16. 16. FOOD WEB a set of interconnected food chains by which energy and materials circulate within an ecosystem
  17. 17. Bahay Kubo
  18. 18. Heat and Light
  19. 19. Energy Pyramid -a diagram of the feeding relationship among organisms which shows the amount of energy available at each level of the food chain -depicts that energy decreases as the trophic level goes up
  20. 20. Energy Pyramid
  21. 21. Level 1 100% 10% of 100 10% of 10 10% of 1Level 4 0.1% Level 3 1% Level 2 10% Only 10% of the energy from the previous level is left for the next level.
  22. 22. Level 1 3,300 cal. 10% of 3,300 10% of 330 10% of 33 Level 4 3.3 cal. Level 3 33 cal. Level 2 330 cal. 100% of 3,300
  23. 23. Level 1 450,000 cal. Level 4 450 cal. Level 3 4,500 cal. Level 2 45,000 cal.
  24. 24. Energy Pyramid Food Pyramid
  25. 25. Using the materials given to you, make an energy pyramid. Compute for the energy available in every trophic level if the First Level has 60, 291 calories. (7 minutes) Group Activity:
  26. 26. Criteria 4 (Very Good) 3 (Good) 2 (Fair) 1 (Needs Improve ment) Logic Computation Creativity and Neatness Presentation:
  27. 27. 1st Level 60,291 cal. 2nd Level 6,029.1 cal. 3rd Level 602.91 cal. 4th Level 60.291 cal. 5th Level 6.0291 cal.
  28. 28. National Government Provincial Government Barangay Government City Government Pyramid of Corruption
  29. 29. Priority Pyramid Arrange your priorities by applying the concept of the energy pyramid.
  30. 30. Generalization: Complete the following statement: •Energy Pyramid is... •The bigger the space that a living thing occupies in the energy pyramid… •As the trophic level goes higher…
  31. 31. Points of Integration Based on the Theme (Pyramids of Life) Health/HELE: Differentiating Energy Pyramid and Food Pyramid Social Studies: Using the Pyramid in Analyzing the Issue of Corruption CLVE: Using the Pyramid in Setting Priorities: Making God the Top Priority Based on the Skills: Music: The Plants in Bahay Kubo Math: Computing Energy in the Different Trophic Levels of the Energy Pyramid Arts: Using Available Materials in Making an Energy Pyramid
  32. 32. How to Teach with Interdisciplinary Approach 1. Pre-Instructional Planning 2. Introduce the Methodology to Students 3. Take it to the Classroom 4. Practice Interdisciplinary Thinking 5. Provide feedback 6. Assessment
  33. 33. Challenges Facing Interdisciplinary Teachers • Become sufficiently knowledgeable • Find the appropriate level of interdisciplinary complexity • Convince students • Avoid polarity • Offer a balance examination • Promote the synthesis of ideas
