One characteristic of an effective teaching strategy is that it is integrated.

an integrated strategy will put together the parts of a whole in order to arrive at a holistic, complete and more accurate view of reality.

An integrated teaching strategy is permeated by the multiple intelligences, varied learning styles and daily experiences of the learners.

Its use also means empowering learners to become lifelong learners and active makers meaning

The three level strategy was popularized by advocates of value clarification like Charles E. Merrill.

The proponents of this integrated teaching strategy asserts that the teachinglearning process should touch the facts level, concept level, and values level.

on the facts level, the students learn isolated facts.

facts

on the concept level, these fragmented and meaningful facts are viewed and organized into concepts fewer than the facts. concepts facts

knowledge acquired are related to the students life.

values concepts

Here is how a lesson plan in science is developed with the use of the three level strategy, one example of an integrated teaching strategy.

Objectives:
To trace the remote and the immediate causes of water pollution. To describe the effects of water pollution. To propose solutions to the problem on water pollution. To launch an anti-pollution drive for the polluted river in the locality.

Subject matter: Water pollution

Materials:
Picture on/ film on polluted rivers/ field trip to a polluted river.

Procedure: Facts level: Conduct a field trip to a polluted river. Ask them to jot down their observations or show pictures of polluted river in contrast with clear rivers and ask them to write down what they see.

Concept level Pivotal questions -What happens when water gets polluted? -What causes water pollution? -How does water pollution affect us?
Activities: Come up with a comic strip to present how fishes and plants in the polluted river would explain what water pollution is if they could talk. -if a polluted river could talk, what would they tell you?

Values level Pivotal questions -in what ways do we contribute to water pollution? -can we say that the root cause of water pollution is our very own indifference? How can you fight this icy indifferences? - how can we show care for our rivers and other bodies of water? What are possible solutions to the problem on water pollution? - if we continue to pollute the rivers, what would happen?

Activities: Small group discussion - Divide the class into groups of five or six and ask them to discuss their answers to the questions given above. Share your answers to the class. Research on the contributory factors to the river pollution in your area. Come up with a project on anti-pollution.

Thank you!!!!
