"Just as children cannot be separated into segments for social, emotional, physical or intellectual development, so too content cannot be presented as separate and discreet subject matter....The learning experiences in a unit of study allow children the opportunity to learn concepts as parts of an integrated whole, rather than isolated bits and pieces of information under a particular content area" (Raines & Canady, 1990, p. 12). Thus, when instruction is presented in a holistic manner, children view it as a relevant part of their lives. This paper details how teachers can create integrated, holistic lessons using writing activities that are relevant, engaging and appropriate across the curriculum.
