      I try to familiarize myself with the curriculum within my district. This allows me to make an overt references to previous years/other disciplines. Ex. I just finished a composites unit in STEM. When I introduced the unit, I opened with a question about ancient civilizations (7th grade history) and how they started to manufacture bricks out clay and straw. This immediately provided context and gave my class a head start.
