CHAPTER 8
STARR MULTIDISCIPLINARY
UNITS

I keep six honest serving-men
They taught me all I knew;
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.

—Rudyard Kipling, [The Elephant's Child,]Just So Stories, 1902


THE INTERRELATIONSHIP OF THE STARR COMPONENTS

As you read through each STARR component—speaking, technology, analysis, reading, and research—it is our hope that you clearly see the interrelationships. We do not teach these components separately, but on a daily basis they are woven together so that our learners are immersed in a holistic learning experience. One of the major criticisms of public education today is the fragmented nature of the presentation of the curriculum. Hopping from language arts to social studies to math to science and so on in 45- or 50-minute segments with no connections certainly fragments learning. In this curriculum, we try to help students make connections among disciplines and to the real world. We present each component separately in this book to accommodate the limitations of this form of communication. We also want to share multidisciplinary units that truly incorporate all STARR components.


CREATING STARR ENRICHED LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS

Any multidisciplinary curriculum requires collaboration. The teacher, Media Specialist, Technology Coordinator, and other team members together create an abundance of resources. Students find that they have a variety of people who help facilitate their searches. Therefore, the collaboration of staff and students is critical to the learning process.
