Is Finland leading the charge in moving schools away from traditional subjects? It depends who you ask, but for most, yes. Are they completely nixing content areas? No, not really. They are, however, accelerating a trend that has become rather familiar—cross-curricular instruction. Think STEM. Or STEAM. Oh, and STREAM. Increasingly, curriculum is taking an interdisciplinary approach, combining aspects of multiple subjects to build a “holistic” lesson.
