Abstract

This paper reports on a survey of the perceptions of school teachers regarding teaching integrated curricula in Hong Kong. A written questionnaire dealing with the theory and practice of curriculum integration has been administered to a group of serving primary school teachers. The survey attempted to identify contexts that effect the introduction of curriculum integration and to discover the extent to which respondents recognized the need to enhance the implementation of curriculum integration in schools. Since teachers are the critical agents for bringing changes to curriculum and teaching, it also questioned teachers about challenges that needed to be overcome to ensure successful implementation of curriculum integration. Based on teacher concerns about teaching integrated curricula, findings of the survey contribute to making recommendations for future policy.
