A3 A big benefit of effective cross curricular learning can be higher levels of student engagement & “buy in” to the learning

via Echofon

timmyjhiggins A1. Cross curricular is how life happens. We use knowledge from many different areas in our daily lives.We should teach like it to.

@timmyjhiggins and boy do we ever need more cross cultural learning in our schools and communities!

via Echofon in reply to timmyjhiggins

timmyjhiggins Another type of CCL, cross cultural learning. Students engage more when the work applies to their lives and their identities.
