Looking for pre-K through 12th grade or adult basic education curriculum resources? Kraus Curriculum Development Library (KCDL) indexes this type of information resource, with much of the content available in full-text.

Through KCDL find ideas for defining curriculum, establishing standards, and developing lesson plans. Want to teach about how ecosystems recover from oil spills? Search for “oil spill” and find NOAA’s Prince William’s Oily Mess: A Tale of Recovery. Find music resources from Carnegie Hall. Kearney Public Schools’ K-5 Language Arts and Mathematics standards are indexed and available in full-text through KCDL.

ERIC (Education Resources Information Center) of the U. S. Department of Education is another good resource for locating pre-K through 12th grade curriculum resources.

Need ideas for teaching? Check out KCDL and ERIC.  Both resources are also listed on the library’s “Articles & E-Resources” webpage, under “Education (K-12)” and the alphabetical lists.

Note:  These resources are available to authorized users from anywhere in the world. If accessing from off-campus, complete the library’s login form to gain access.
