Parallel concepts are the "bread and butter" of a correlated lesson. This is where the two subjects being taught are brought together. This is the closest part of the lesson to integration. Parallel concepts in mathematics and science have parallel relationships (e.g., zero and no acceleration in science are parallel zero and no slope in mathematics).

Use the links below to see an example of how two teachers, Mr. Jake Hammons and Ms. Darla Michaelidis, go about addressing parallel concepts for a correlated lesson. These videos are facilitated by Dr. Selina Vasquez-Mireles, a math faculty member of Texas State University.
