Problem solved:

The Lincoln Learning curriculum is designed to provide flexibility and personalized learning opportunities to students. It enables educators and administrators to design an ideal program to meet the specific needs of the students within their school or district. Whether clients are building a virtual school or looking for ways to add more interactivity to their classrooms, Lincoln Learning’s products and services can help.

The granular nature of the learning objects also makes the curriculum a perfect fit for blended classroom settings. In this learning environment, the curriculum can be used as supplemental content for students who need extra practice or for those who need to work ahead. It can also be used for flipped classroom models, for homework, and for whole group instruction. During an emergency or weather-related closure, the Lincoln Learning curriculum includes everything both the students and staff need to keep working seamlessly.

The Lincoln Learning courses are also available to home-school families via our eCommerce site. Families can choose from a full catalog of core and elective courses to meet the needs of their children.



Grade/age range:  

Lincoln Learning’s curriculum is designed for students in Early Kindergarten through Grade 12.


Core or supplemental:

The Lincoln Learning course catalog includes core courses in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. It also includes a wide variety of electives in art, music, world languages, physical education, and other general electives. The course catalog expands further offering a variety of career and technical education courses, powered by Pointful Education, which brings additional STEM, elective, and career exploration to the core curriculum offerings. Students who are seeking to make up for loss credits will have a wide selection of Credit Recovery courses to choose from.

The learning objects within the curriculum are used to create lessons. However, these objects can be used individually via the Lincoln Learning Object Repository to provide supplemental content to students for extra practice or for homework. Teachers can also use content from other courses above or below a student’s grade level. In doing so, work can be assigned to help a student revisit a skill that still needs to be mastered or extend their knowledge by presenting the content in a new or more challenging way.

To assist all students with the complete comprehension of course content, Lincoln’s learning objects boast innovative, user-friendly digital features from Texthelp, including a text reader, an extensive language translator, highlighting capabilities, and an advanced note-taking tool. Combined with a flexible learning management system, these features allow students and families to navigate, annotate, and translate course content. 

In tandem with Texthelp, the flexibility and consistent design of the curriculum permits content from lower grades or external courses to be pulled up and assessments to be modified for students who require additional help. This capability allows them to accommodate IEPs, GIEPs, and 504 Plans.

The assessment design provides clients the opportunity to adjust formative and summative assessments to accommodate student GIEPs, IEPs, and 504 Plans. The design of the assessments and the items therein paired with the capabilities that exist within the LearningTree platform give clients schools the capability to tailor assessments to an entire class of students, a subset of students within a given class, or even an individual student to make the accommodations laid out in GIEPs, IEPs, or 504 Plans.
