Custom Curriculum Builder

Overview

QuaverEd curriculum resources provide teachers with a variety of songs, activities, interactive screens, and customizable content. This documentation will give you an overview of the resources and tools available for customization in Custom Curriculum.

Note: The examples used below are from QuaverMusic, but the same functionality is available in QuaverSEL curriculum resources as well.

Prerequisites

You should already have a Quaver username and password, and be able to access your Teacher Dashboard at QuaverEd.com. If you need login instructions or help to access the dashboard, please reach out to our team at Info@QuaverEd.com.

From the Teacher Dashboard, select the Custom Curriculum icon. Here you can customize units and lesson scope and sequence to fit your specific needs using both Custom and Quaver lessons. 

District and Teacher Views

At the top of the Custom Menu, toggle between district and teacher views. The bright, highlighted button is the selected choice.

  • District: In this view, you are editing a shared menu for all users connected to the same district. This view can only be administered by an appointed account in the district. Please contact your district administrator or the Quaver team to arrange this.
  • Teacher: In this view, you are editing a menu for only your individual teacher account.

Menu Organization

The Custom Menu is organized with grade levels across the top and three columns of lesson modules. Each module is listed on a button in the center of the screen for navigation to additional modules.

With a Grade and Module open, you’ll next drag lessons from your Lesson List into your desired order.

Select Lessons from Lesson List

On the right-hand side you will find the Lesson List broken into three tabs: 

  • Custom – Lessons created by you or shared by your district colleagues
  • Quaver – Lessons found in the primary Quaver Curriculum
  • Song-Based – Lessons found in our Song-Based Lessons

The lesson icons to the left of each lesson title indicate what type of lesson it is. Use the key to determine if it is one of your lessons, a lesson shared by a colleague or supervisor, or a lesson that has been marked as part of your district’s specific scope and sequence.

To add a lesson from this list into a module, simply click and drag the lesson into place. You can reorder the Lessons within your module or click and drag it to the trash can if you no longer want the lesson to appear in the module.
