Do you know how to save a Quaver Lesson Plan as a PDF to save or submit to your supervisor? 

With 216 Curriculum Lesson Plans at your disposal – the only question left to answer is, “How will you use them?”

Maybe you need to submit these Lesson Plans to a supervisor via email or third-party program. You can easily do that by saving the Lesson Plan as a PDF on your computer.

Navigate to the Lesson Plan and follow the instructions below for your Browser to save as a PDF:

  • Log in to QuaverMusic.com
  • Click the Teacher Tab to navigate to your Teaching Resources
  • Click the Curriculum Icon
  • Click the Lesson you’d like to view
  • Click Lesson Plan to Open the Lesson Plan in a new window (make sure your pop-up blocker is disabled!)

Now you’re ready to print your Quaver Lesson Plans for the week, or email the saved pdf as an attachment to your supervisor! If you do save all your Quaver Lesson Plans, remember to revisit the Lesson Plan next year to get the latest version if any changes or additions have been made.

As we move towards adding customization functionality to the Curriculum, we’d love to know how you’re using the Lesson Plans and what additional features you’d like to see. Let us know in the comments!

We hope this makes Lesson Planning even easier for you this year!
