Searching LibSearch for Curriculum Books

St. Kate's Library and other MnPALS Partner libraries contain multiple curriculum guides for K-12 educators. The best way to try to find these is to search LibSearch (above) like this:

  • Add this to the search: ("curriculum planning" OR "curriculum development" OR "study and teaching")
  • Add the level you're looking for: ("high school" OR secondary) | ("elementary school" OR primary)
  • Add the subject area: mathematics | "social studies" | science | "earth science"

Here are some example searches:

  • ("curriculum planning" OR "curriculum development" OR "study and teaching") ("high school" OR secondary) mathematics
  • ("curriculum planning" OR "curriculum development" OR "study and teaching") ("elementary school" OR primary) "social studies"

After you do a search, you may want to limit the Publication Date by using the filter on the left-hand side of the results page, and scroll down to limit to the Juvenile collection:

If the book is not at St. Kate's, sign in to request the item from other MnPALS Partner libraries.
