What's a Course Overview and how do I create one?

This is part of our Curriculum Solution. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

A Course Overview in Chalk allows you to add additional context to a curriculum map. This can include standards and/or resources that are relevant for the whole course, not just one unit.

A Course Overview acts similar to a unit as it can have its own template complete with all the flexibility of a unit template. In fact, if you’re using a curriculum map with a Course Overview in Planboard, you’re able to access this content from any lesson as soon as you associate that lesson to a unit. Here is how you add a course overview to you template.

Adding a Course Overview to a Template

If the Curriculum Map Template is published, click the Create Draft button on the top-right to edit the template.

Editing Standards on a Course Overview

Assigning standards to your course overview will allow you to create a shortlist of targeted standards for the course that you can use when assigning standards to your units.

Step 1:

Select the Course Overview within your curriculum map, then click on the +Standards button in the Standards field box.

Step 2:

You will see the curriculum standard sets that you have assigned to this map. Simply click on a standard set and click the Add button to assign any standards you would like to this map. You can also use the search feature at the top to search for any keywords associated with the standards you are looking for. All the selected standards will be shown on the right-hand side of the window, and you can click on the ‘X’ to remove any standards you want to remove from the unit. Once you are done, click Save.

Step 3:

When adding standards to your units, you will now see an option to choose from the shortlist of standards you added to your course overview.
