Is there curriculum mapping for Ireland?

The mapping is split into 4 sections: Primary 3rd & 4th, Primary 5th & 6th, Junior Cycle, and Senior Cycle. Within each section, it is further broken down by curriculum strand, and then by chapter/section.Each subject is mapped into a separate Excel workbook file, which you can download and view on your computer.The tabs along the bottom of the workbook show the chapters/sections within the curriculum strand, and each of these sheets includes the Khan Academy exercises that are aligned to each given section’s content. 


Using the Mapping Document in Your Classroom

Once you have downloaded the mapping document and found the relevant chapter/section and topic that you are teaching, you can create a study guide for your class. You can recommend the exercises through the coach recommendation feature, or have the students locate and complete the exercises in their dashboard and monitor their progress in the coach reports.
