Curriculum

There is a plethora of resources and curriculum available. It is impossible to give a comprehensive list. And, as you know, Totem does not like to limit our families with only an “approved” list.

However, we wanted to have some kind of a list to help our current, and future, families. So, we decided to create a list of resources and curriculum based on what our Totem families have chosen to use!

The following is a compilation from 2020/2021 ILPs (Individual Learning Plans.)
Totem Correspondence makes no recommendations for or against any of these resources.
