Blurb/Shorttext:
The majority of schools in the United States still neglect the value of an interdisciplinary education. Integrating subjects helps students make meaningful connections, creating a more interconnected undertanding of the world. This research project includes the design and assessment of a unit that facilitates students’ making of meaningful connections between literature and history. This project combined the literary theory of New Historicism and the curricular model of the International Baccalaureate Organisation to create and analyze a unit for Art Spiegelman’s Maus I and Maus II that combines literary and nonliterary texts. The key findings that emerged were that the curriculum: 1) Presents multiple perspectives and encourages multicultural awareness; 2) Promotes holistic learning through the connections made between literature and history; and 3) Supports the development of speaking, listening, reading, writing, viewing, and thinking skills. Educators interested in developing an interdisciplinary approach to teaching will benefit from this study and curriculum, especially those in the fields of literature and history.
