Do you find that you never have enough time in the day to teach the information you need? Would you love for your students to study the core subject-matter throughout the entire day no matter what class they are attending? Using technology tools and core content Integration techniques, this can become a reality. During this session, best practices on subject integration across the curriculum will be shared and the Creative Content Integration method will be discussed. Using this method, teachers and curriculum planners will have the ability to help their students dive deeper into class material.

Creative Content Integration is the process of taking a subject-area theme or skill and incorporating it into all classes the child experiences throughout the day. Children are able to manipulate content in reading, math, art, music, physical education and other subject-areas.  This process takes careful planning and support of enrichment teachers. The presenter will discuss her experience using the Creative Content Integration technique. Elementary grade level examples will be presented and discussed with participants. Example student work and planning templates will be shown as well. Like Project Based Learning, students can work to produce a single project which is supported and assessed in all content areas or students can work on separate projects in each area supported by a common theme.

1. Presenter will make introductions and give background
2. Presenter will define and discuss the basics of the Creative Content Integration (CCI) technique
3. The presenter will show examples of CCI projects in elementary grades 1, 2, 3, and 4.
4. The presenter will share planning templates
5. Presenter will discuss meeting agendas and assessment ideas to effectively execute the project.
