Abstract

Over the last decade, there have been many changes to the school curriculum that have come along with societal changes in response to the changing needs in a global world. One of the many challenges has been the adoption of an integrated approach in the school curriculum. Despite the many advantages claimed by the advocates of curriculum integration, implementation is always easier said than done. The situation is particularly difficult when a new integrated subject is introduced in the senior school curriculum, as has been the case in Hong Kong in the New Senior Secondary Curriculum. The present study aims to explore how schools deal with a new integrated subject and the key factors affecting its implementation. Copyright © 2011 Australian Curriculum Studies Association Inc..
