ERIC (Education Resource Information Center) is an online database that contains more than 1.6 million records and links to more than 631,000 full-text documents records for a variety of source types, including journal articles, books, conference papers, curriculum guides, policy papers and more an education-specific thesaurus containing over 11,700 terms.
Curriculum guides, units of study, and lesson plans can also be found in the ERIC collection of educational materials.
The online index to the ERIC collection can be accessed using the “Databases A-Z” link from the Library home page at http://library.csun.edu. The best strategy to use to identify curriculum guides/lesson plans in ERIC is to combine your subject with the phrase “lesson planning” or “curriculum planning”.
