Fogarty has endeavoured to present all of the different views of what ''integrating'' a curriculum could actually mean. The fact that there are 10 different versions presented in this book demonstrates how many views there are. This is both a positive and negative.

It''s admirable that he has gone to this effort to present all of these different views.

What impresses me most, though, is the visual representation of each version. This helps to see at a glance what these different versions look like, more or less, which is a lot easier to understand. These are not perfect or particularly modern, by any means, but are much better than anything else in books or on the Internet.

The problem is that Fogarty over complicates things. By presenting all of these different forms of subject integration, I feel as though he fails in his goals, i.e. to promote this in schools. If you believe in subject integration, you surely can''t believe that all 10 variants are viable. I certainly don''t. You either integrate subjects around themes, or else you simply have a superficial form of integration that is kind of pointless and maintains the status quo with education. I have no idea what Fogarty stands for, but surely someone who is passionate about this topic enough to write several books about it should present his view on what subject integration really is. He needs to focus on one concept that he believes in, and spoon feed it to readers.

Finally, if you approach this book with no understanding or prior concept of integrated subjects, I''m not sure how much you''d get out of this book (for the reasons mentioned above). Otherwise, it''s good way to help you visualise the concept that you have in your mind, as well as to better understand it.
