course overviews grades k4-8th

The Indian Community School cultivates an enduring cultural identity and critical thinking by weaving indigenous teachings with a distinguished learning environment. ICS Course Overviews are documents for each course at every grade level that provide clear, measurable learning outcomes based on Board-approved standards.

ICS Course Overviews contain learning outcomes for the specific knowledge, skills, and learning expectations necessary for student success at every grade level.   Each Course Overview provides a course description, Enduring Understandings and Learning Targets based on standards for every grade level subject.  The Course Description offers a general overview of the content and links to the standards for the course.  The Enduring Understandings summarize important ideas, processes, connections, and the purpose of learning in each content area.  The Learning Targets provide clear, measurable learning objects from the student’s point of view that frame the purpose of a lesson, unit, or assessment
