The goal of this study was to identify strategies used by exemplar practitioners to develop integrated instruction. A pilot case study design was used and four sources of data were analyzed allowing for a convergence of data sets. These data sets included a questionnaire, an audio recording, lesson plans, and student artifacts. Data were analyzed through theme analysis producing 26 strategies. These strategies were then collapsed into a final list of 15 representing important areas of consideration for practitioners. A careful review of these 15 strategies identified three broad strategy categories: Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. By grouping strategies in this way, each could be shown to relate to specific aspects of the overall integrative instructional process.
