A curriculum guide is a packet of practical ideas for teaching. It is written in a convenient format as practical teaching notes for use by either you or your colleagues. It is a how-to guide that covers steps for achieving specific objectives, principles governing behavior, or descriptions of effective teaching strategies, interventions, and accommodations that a special educator can use in the classroom. The guide might include:
1. The title of the strategy or principle
2. An explanation of its educational purpose (goal or objective)
3. A task analysis of teacher and student activities
4. Student assessment procedures
5. A reference for each strategy
Create a curriculum guide for teaching an academic subject with additional learning strategies and possible behavioral interventions for any off-task student. Include practical information necessary for effective teaching of students with EBD.
The curriculum guide should be sufficiently accurate, thorough, and clear to such a degree that the reader can implement the strategies. The guide should be usable by any of the teachers in the student’s school
