More schools are at least getting their feet wet with interdisciplinary approaches to teaching, albeit at different depths. CannonDesign’s Brodsky calls this “cross cutting” and cites the Carrie Busey Elementary School, Savoy, Ill. The 63,024-sf K-5 school incorporates the Coordinated Approach to Child’s Health (CATCH) program, which teaches children healthy habits that focus on food and physical activities. The school has its own 200-sf “Education Kitchen” where students can learn to prepare healthy foods. Outside, students can grow and harvest food in the school’s dedicated garden.
