Nevada District and Curriculum
Nevada Community School District serves more than 1,600 students in three schools. The district is also home to the Nevada Community Resource Center, which provides before- and after-school care and a preschool wrap around program through a structured environment that helps develop academic, social, emotional, and physical skills. All schools follow the Iowa Core Curriculum which provides a detailed series of learning objectives in Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills. Additional programs in the arts, foreign languages, and career-oriented electives all use frameworks that explain what student will learn and be able to do from taking the course.
We currently cover the following Nevada-area school district: Nevada Community School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Nevada District Curriculum
Nevada Community School District places great emphasis on integrating hands-on learning into instruction. The science curriculum is particularly conducive to this goal and elementary students are able to experiment with topics like force and motion, matter and energy, earth and environmental science, and biology. In high school, students also learn how to formulate their own hypotheses, design their own experiments, observe and take notes on the phenomenon they observe, and communicate their findings.
The Literacy curriculum also offers many opportunities for hands-on application of the literacy skills students develop over the years. In writing, the curriculum calls upon students to write for many purposes including creative, persuasive, analytic, and informational. Students also gain media literacy skills and use works of media as the basis for discussions and presentations. Research skills go along with the expectations, and students learn how to use library resource to locate information they will use in their own work.

- Nevada Teacher Seeks “Sincerity” With Affirmation Cards - Kimberly Huegerich, who was previously 2010 ITEC Teacher of Year, uses affirmation cards on which students write to a peer “affirming” something they did, such as helping them with a project. For the concept, which is meant to emphasize sincerity, Ms. Huegerich recommends giving students starter phrases when just beginning the cards (such as, “Thank you for…”), reviewing the cards before sending them out as a precaution against bullying, and having students write cards to peers sitting near them to ensure each student receives at least one card.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Arthur Writes a Story
Children often don't enjoy writing, but engaging them in a book that walks them through the writing process can help simplify it for them and show how writing can be fun. Marc Brown’s Arthur Writes a Story shows children that they can write about whatever they would like. Readers get to read Arthur’s story, as it includes a written version of Arthur’s story and illustrations that go along with his story. It also shows children the different parts of a book—the title page, the title, the copyright page, the front flap, the dust jacket, the cover, the endpapers, the spine, etc. Additionally, it discusses the process of making a book, including the roles of the author, illustrator, editor, publisher, designer, copyeditor, production director, color separator, printer, publicity and promotion director, and salesman. This allows children to appreciate all that goes into making a book—the amount of time it takes, and all of the different people who are involved.
