UCSD Curriculum and Iowa Core
The Urbandale Community School District provides a guaranteed and viable curriculum for all students based on the Iowa Academic Standards. The standards provide Urbandale educators with defined grade levels and course outcomes. These outcomes are further defined, prioritized, assessed, and used to drive instructional responses. Collaborative teams of teachers engage in cycles of collective inquiry by answering the following four questions:
- What do we want all students to know and be able to do?
- How will we know students have learned the essential learning?
- What will we do for those students that have not learned the essential learning?
- What will we do for those students that have learned the essential learning?
