Abstract

A curriculum project entitled “Integrated Curriculum: Exemplars of Curriculum Development" aiming at the promotion of curriculum reform and curriculum integration in primary schools was implemented in Hong Kong. The project comprised of five components including curriculum review by experts, curriculum implementation, exploration of outcome, experience sharing and dissemination of outcome. The six participating schools gained valuable experiences regarding the implementation of relevant integrated curriculum. A total of 51 teachers involved in the curriculum implementation were invited to respond to a written questionnaire on teachers’ insight into curriculum integration. This article analyzes and discusses the result of questionnaire survey on teachers’ insight by means of four focuses: (1) planning, organization and management of integrated curriculum; (2) teaching strategies and skills for integrated curriculum; (3) teachers’ understanding of integrated curriculum; and (4) teachers’ suggestions on the implementation of curriculum reform and integration.
