I have gotten so many questions about curriculum guides and the resources included in them and I have decided to address those issues in this episode. The resources I found online when I searched for ESL Curriculum Guides lacked the specificity that I wanted. So, I created a newcomer curriculum guide myself. This is a done-for-you newcomer curriculum guide that you can purchase and download with the click of a button below. I also share the process I took to create it in case you would like to create a newcomer curriculum guide yourself. I know some teachers like to do things like this themselves because it helps them internalize their curriculum and tailor materials to their students.

What you will hear in this episode: 

  • What a curriculum guide is and what it includes
  • How a curriculum guide differs from a scope and sequence
  • The ways  a curriculum guide provides both accountability and flexibility throughout the year
  • The steps you can take to build your own curriculum guide
  • Where you can find a template or a done-for-you curriculum guide to use


As mentioned in the episode, I am linking some useful resources!
