  • At JCS, we believe that learning is driven by student interest in the real and natural world.
  • In Spring of 2016, Instructional Leaders introduced an integration model to connect Reading, Social Studies, Science and Writing using technology as a tool for exploration and collaboration. (insert mission and connect to real world learning) Our process, guided by current research, is to identify key components of an integrated curriculum, develop a planning guide for teachers, design and begin integrating in 2016-2017. Next, we will review units to ensure learning tasks represent Common Core, Next Gen, SEL and ISTE for Students. Our goal is to have a fully integrated curriculum in the 2018-2019 school year that incorporates CCSS, NGSS, SEL and ISTE standards.
