Curriculum guides “usually

instructional strategies”
(Ben-Peretz, 1990, p. 25).

Curriculum guidelines
furnish information about
predetermined learning
outcomes and are generally
less complete than
curriculum guides.
Courses of study or
syllabi usually specify the
content, the learning
outcomes, and time
allocations for the various
topics. Sometimes a
rationale for the choices of
content is included in
Resource units typically
include learning
outcomes, suggestions for
teaching, sources of
information, and prepared
instructional units. Lists of
curriculum goals and
objectives, along with their
rationales, are another
form of project.
