To do integrative teaching by interdisciplinary and 3-level teaching mode, a teacher must be able to connect subject matter to values and to a life as a whole. To be able to integrate MI and LS, the teacher must e familiar with MIs and LSs and must have a reservoir of teaching activities to be able to cater to students with diverse MIs and LSs.
