Each Tuesday, we bring you a Tip of the Week to make using your Quaver resources easier than ever!

Click Play to listen to our Tip of the Week jingle! (Email readers, click-through to listen to the Tip of the Week Tune)

Today’s Tip is for all users of Quaver’s Curriculum!

Did you know you can save a Quaver Lesson Plan as a PDF? 

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 may just want backups in case of tech problems. Regardless of the reason, you can easily save 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!)

We use a program called Forethought to upload our lesson plans into. I launch the Quaver lesson plan, right click and select all, copy and paste them into Forethought. Nice part is, if I want to add my own thoughts or activities, I can type them into that document as well. Very user friendly in that format!
