Striving for Change: Introducing an Interdisciplinary Approach into the Urban Primary Schools of China

  •  Lan Zou    


In the traditional Chinese curriculum, subjects are learned separately since students start their formal schooling. Students usually neglect the connection among different subjects, which, to some extent, restricts their way of thinking. In order to change the status quo, the focus of this paper is to explore the feasibility of introducing an interdisciplinary approach into the current curriculum of urban primary schools in China. Also, this paper predicts the problems when the interdisciplinary approach is implemented, and provides some suggestions and solutions for school leaders and teachers to adopt.
