Mission: "To Enhance Student Learning for Greater Student Success"
Vision: Johnson County School District #1 is committed to providing a "world class" curriculum to prepare students for success today and in the future. Our curriculum is focused on "big ideas" and "enduring understandings" to deepen student understanding and promote inquiry into important issues and ideas. We ask students to demonstrate their learning through authentic assessments.
Authentic Assessments: Tasks designed to simulate or replicate real-world challenges.
Backward Design: The process used to design curriculum by beginning with the end in mind (big ideas and enduring understandings) and designing toward that end. In Johnson County, we begin with the results and assessments clearly specified, and then we determine the necessary knowledge and skills to equip the students to demonstrate their learning through authentic assessments.
Big Ideas: Big ideas are the core concepts that are transferable beyond the scope of a unit.
Enduring Understandings: The important ideas or core processes that have lasting value beyond the classroom. To determine enduring understandings, teachers ask, "What do we want students to understand and be able to use several years from now, after they have forgotten the details?"
Essential Question: A provocative question designed to engage student interest and guide inquiry into the important ideas in a field of study. Essential questions are intended to stimulate discussion and rethinking over time.
