Abstract: Problems concerning environmental issues may take various forms but all are commonly related to the mankind. One such problem, in Indonesia context is low level of awareness amongst students or households in society. Academicians in universities or top management in industries, private companies as well as the government officers in Indonesia in general are also have a very low level of awareness toward environmental issues. Concern about growing environmental degradation in Indonesia has called for the teachers to help promote the awareness of the environmental issues amongst the society members, particularly among students at primary or secondary schools. Integrated learning model is a learning strategy which involves some subject matters in order to develop the useful experiences for the students. The integrated learning model is given to the students in the hope that after the teaching and learning process, students will be able to look at something as a holistic thing. The objectives of this study are the following to describe the definition of integrated learning model, to explain the domains of the integrated learning process and to explore the expected result of the application of the integrated learning model. Information for this article is gathered through a secondary analysis conducted for a larger study to measure the different effect of integrated learning model in classroom at primary school student conducted in Bandung City, West Java, Indonesia. Results showed that the integrated learning model is a technique of teaching and learning which involves the integration of knowledge, skills and attitudes in the learning process. There are three domains in integrated learning process which are cognitive, affective and psychomotor. The expected result of integrated learning model is that the development of the attitude of students at the primary school level should be much wider than that of at the junior high school, high school or at the higher level of education. Thus, the development of attitude has to be shaped as early as the primary school to promote the awareness of the environmental issues amongst the society.
