Text and Context
Another development that has occurred because of the Integration program is that teachers are approaching me to talk about upcoming lessons and give suggestions for them. Even in class, sometimes a student asks a question that the teacher is better prepared to answer, so then I get new information for the presentations in that way. In either case, the integration is enabling (at least for me) a rich sharing of ideas with knowledgeable Chumash and Nach teachers, a sharing that perhaps wouldn't take place if we were all locked in our classrooms, simply teaching on our own (I teach English lit and art history when I'm not doing the Integration).
