The purpose of this research was to study a second grade class during an interdisciplinary lesson that combined music and poetry. The research examined the nature of interdisciplinary studies to determine the degree of integration that occurred. Specifically, the study examined the objectives of two teachers, each of a different subject area, who worked together placing a strong emphasis on the process by which these objectives were met. Another purpose was to illustrate the effectiveness this type of teaching has on music education.
