Abstract

Recently, interdisciplinary instruction has come back to the educational scene, specifically through the Common Core Standards. As teacher educators and former middle level teachers, we see this as a positive move to enhance young adolescent learning. This qualitative study sought to answer: How do pre-service and in-service middle level teachers respond to interdisciplinary instruction? Our findings provide key insights into how interdisciplinary instruction, when implemented successfully, not only benefits young adolescents but also empowers middle level teachers and brings about a more professional environment.
