Our time (and our students’ time) is limited! Mapping your curriculum out allows you to be intentional with the lessons you choose to deliver. Curriculum maps are also wonderful to share with your administration (especially for observations) and with parents. This resource also includes examples of different themes and lessons you can use, making your job easier. Themes or units in lessons also lead to higher impact with your students as they provide the needed repetition for things to “stick” with our kiddos.
How to Use This Resource
It’s helpful to begin drafting a curriculum map in the spring before the year ends when the needs of your students are fresh in your mind. You can then edit it once you have needs assessment data in. Easy to upload into Google Drive to collaborate with a co-counselor as needed.
***All text is editable (ex. These maps include August-May, but you can change them to be September-June if you start later).
