Integration With Integrity

by: Lisa Nyberg and Susan McCloskey

Read! Read! Read! In first grade, language arts are such a driving force; and yet, we know the students love science and art! How can we integrate the subjects, maintain the integrity of each subject area, and authentically assess the students? The key is to maximize your instruction time and integrate with integrity. Here the authors share how they were able to integrate with integrity as they introduced a literacy-filled unit on insects to their first-grade students, most of whom were beginning English learners.
