“The Lost civilization” 4 th grade I term Common Core “La interdisciplinariedad es algo excelente si se sustenta firmemente en la disciplinariedad. Cada asignatura se debe considerar una herramienta eficaz, no un fin en sí misma. Debemos mantener su identidad y, sobre todo, su propia metodología. Solo de esta manera podremos construir una verdadera interdisciplinariedad. De lo contrario, solo lograremos confundir a nuestros alumnos y abordar las materias superficialmente.” Gérard Renaud, 1989 ALEXANDRA SARMIENTO: SELF CONTAINED TEACHER 4A STEFANÍA GARCÍA: SELF CONTAINED TEACHER 4B JOHN PINILLA: SECLF CONTAINED TEACHER 4C
“The Lost civilization” “La comprensión interdisciplinaria es la capacidad de integrar conocimientos y formas de pensar de dos o más disciplinas para crear una nueva perspectiva ... una nueva comprensión ... no sustituye a la enseñanza disciplinaria, sino que la amplía.” Verónica Boix Mansilla, miembro del equipo Harvard Project Zero
