Students can embark on an experience that provides an opportunity for them to engage in a more relevant and less fragmented experience where they begin to understand that all disciplines intertwine to create knowledge that serves them in their world. A true interdisciplinary unit goes beyond a mere humanities class. Multiple disciplines (math, English, history, science, art, and technology) are needed to create a curriculum that identifies the correlations between disciplines, but reveals how it is not possible to fully understand one’s world without recognizing all disciplines as equally important.
