Today, we return to a topic that comes up every few months, the concept of teaching an interdisciplinary class. Show Notes: We kick off our episode with a question: what was your favorite non-science subject(s) in school when you were a kid? Joining us from Missouri is Kelly Kluthe: Art and orchestra! I loved drawing and playing the violin. I was a quiet kid in school but was able to express myself through art and music. Joining us from Texas is Lee Ferguson: Music theory was one of my favorite classes. I also really loved Government class. Aaron: Probably History. I had several amazing high school history teachers. Questions Discussed: - How siloed are the subjects in your school? Do teachers with different disciplinary expertise get to collaborate? - Are there any interdisciplinary classes or projects that you know about that are currently being taught in your school? If not, do you know other schools where they are taking place? - What would be your dream interdisciplinary class or project to run?
