Curriculum Guides

The curriculum guides application (see What is an Application?) contains teacher guides for incorporating Field Guide material into lessons for particular curricula. The infrastructure is near-identical to that of the Chapters application, so this page will mostly cover what is different.

Curriculum Guides Overview

Much like the chapters application, the curriculum guides application is made up of curriculum guides and each curriculum guide is broken down into sections. The content and configuration files are stored in the same way as those in the Chapters application, with ‘chapter’ equating to ‘curriculum guide’.

What is different?

The most significant differences between the curriculum guides and chapters applications are as follows:

  • Interactives cannot be added to curriculum guides.
  • Glossary terms cannot be linked to in curriculum guides, as the glossary is a part of the chapters application.
  • There is no required icon field in a curriculum guide configuration file.
  • There is no optional video field in a curriculum guide configuration file.

Examples

A complete curriculum guide application structure file with multiple curriculum guides may look like the following:
