All teachers, facilitators, and leaders etc… need to ask the following questions: Who are we teaching? Why are we teaching what we are teaching? What does diversity indicate? How are we teaching and being a leader? What exactly is inclusion? How do we best educate the “Whole Child” and the “Individual Child”? How do we connect various disciplines in our teaching? Interdisciplinary education is a process in which two or more subject areas are integrated with the goal of fostering enhanced learning in each subject area. The disciplines may be related through a central theme, issue, problem, process, topic, or experience (Jacobs, 1989). Implementing an interdisciplinary program brings teachers together to create exciting learning experiences for students and to discover new ways of delivering the curriculum. The concept of interdisciplinary education acknowledges the integrity and uniqueness of each subject area, yet recognizes the interrelationships among subjects. Let's learn to promote Inclusion as a process and not a placement and add some fun disciplines to our teaching to bring out all the ability levels of the children we teach!
