Real world is in­te­grated.Learn­ers do best when learn­ing is con­nected.It makes learn­ing rel­e­vant and mean­ing­ful to the learn­ers.It cap­i­tal­izes on the larn­ers’ex­pe­ri­ences in pro­vid­ing more mean­ing­ful learn­ing.

Stu­dents learn by draw­ing upon their own life ex­pe­ri­ences and ap­ply­ing it in the dif­fer­ent ar­eas. It in­volves the fol­low­ing key el­e­ments:the­matic units as or­ga­niz­ing prin­ci­ples,re­la­tion­ships among con­cepts,a com­bi­na­tion of sub­jects,sources be­yond text­books and em­pha­sis on project work.

Teach­ing tech­niques in which many sub­ject ar­eas and skills are or­ga­nized and linked one an­other to pro­vide in­te­gra­tive in­struc­tional pro­gram.There should be com­bi­na­tion of top­ics which may be in­te­grated in lo­cal cul­ture and in­dige­nous re­sources .Other top­ics should be in­te­grated across cur­ricu­lum which is done across and within learn­ing ar­eas. Con­tent based in­te­gra­tion could be done through the­matic teach­ing . Themes should re­late di­rectly to the learner’s ex­pe­ri­ences and re­volve around on what they know.They should rep­re­sent a con­cept for learn­ers to dis­cover new in­for­ma­tion.
