Featured District: Lewis Central

Lewis Central Community School District

Check out Lewis Central Community School District’s webpages on Curriculum and Instruction.

Formerly led by newly retired Dr. Kim Jones and now by Lisa Hartman, the district’s curriculum department focuses on an aligned curriculum vision where 1) Students achieve deep understanding of essential concepts and skills as teachers instruct conceptually (use conceptual instruction) and 2) Instructional planning begins with how learning will transfer to real world applications as teachers identify big ideas, enduring understandings, and essential questions.

Explore the importance the Lewis Central educators place on curriculum coherence, their assessment philosophy, and the curriculum design process. 

This district is focused on learning – and the teaching to achieve that learning!
