Description of the Experience
The most difficult lessons to teach (for me as a biology teacher) are those which rely on connections among concepts from different fields: biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics, that is interdisciplinary topics. Students find it hard to connect things they studied during different subjects. I have found the following solutions:
- revising the concepts students studied separately before asking them to make the necessary connections; teaching students how to connect concepts; highlighting the contribution of each concept to the entire subject;
-communication and collaboration with all my colleagues teaching science with a view to consolidating the concepts;
-organizing work groups made up of students experts in science who are supposed to help those with poor knowledge
- organizing interdisciplinary projects and encouraging students’ participation;
- organizing experiments;
- team teaching ( 11th grade: teaching: digestion through team teaching: biology and chemistry teachers)

The interdisciplinary cooperation in teaching is a task not only for teachers but also for students. In my school, in every classroom there are "happy to help" notice boards. Children who are good in mathematics or well mastered some aspects of nature or history, enroll for the list of people willing to help. Pupils who have a problem with any issue or should improve the test know whom to ask for help.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
