GBSs Tie Together Different Subjects

The Civil War and Biology GBSs are typical in their ability to motivate students and build the skills we want students to learn. But they do have one unusual aspect about them--they fall largely within the confines of a single academic subject. Typically, when teachers try to imagine GBSs, they produce such single-subject versions. This is only natural since the skills they would like to teach typically come from the subject they teach. As a cautionary note, it is important to realize that much of the power of GBSs comes from their ability to tie together different subjects, integrating them in a way which makes sense to the student.
