- In this study, I use interviews with two middle school art teachers to discuss attitudes, experiences, and perceptions in relation to cross disciplinary learning. I examine the ways word choices shape understandings of specific concepts and their influence on teaching and learning styles. Using previous examples of my work to contextualize my conceptual framework, I highlight practical and theoretical aspects of this project. This presentation of my research captures the tone of the teacher interviews in the form of composites of the examples they provided and the concepts we discussed. Situated in relevant literature, I investigate both the teachers' and my own engagement with cross disciplinary learning through interpretations of our ideas about interdisciplinary learning and arts integration. Ending with a look forward, I connect my own thoughts about how learning transcends boundaries using the metaphor of fractals as a way to understand knowledge construction in relation to developing strategies for cross disciplinary and cross contextual learning experiences.
