Resource Manager

Resource Manager is a powerful tool for lesson planning and development. You can use it to search for or build your own lessons, assignments, and screens.

Resource Manager is divided into three main sections:

Topic Index / Resource Sets

You can browse the tabs on the left-hand side of the screen. This is a complete library of Quaver content.

The Topic Index shows the major lesson themes or topics throughout QuaverMusic.

You’ll notice the topics are color-coded. The first four sections address the four domains used throughout NCCAS and many state standards. Below these, you’ll find additional topics covering common teaching styles or classroom needs, such as assessments, projects, or specific cross-curricular subjects. For more info on these topics, click here.

The Resource Sets correlate to the Supplemental Resources found on the Teacher Dashboard. This section will show you the resources available in each of these areas.

Use the center section of Resource Manager to search for specific resources by title or keyword.

Use the Grade and A-Z filters to sort and filter results.

Quick Tip: Click the Home button to clear results. Right-click the Home button to view search history.

To preview search results:

  • Select any item from the search results to open a preview window at the bottom of the screen.
  • Select Menu > Launch to open the resource in a new window.
  • Select Menu > Get Link to generate a shareable a link for your students.

Screens

Quaver lessons or assignments are made up of screens. Screens contain a variety of lesson materials including musical exercises, games, videos and more! Quaver comes with a huge set of pre-built lessons with screens you can grab from. You can also create custom screens in Resource Creation.

Add screens to a folder

To add a screen to a folder, drag a screen from the search window or pre-existing folder to a new folder, lesson, or assignment. Screens built in Resource Creation will show up in your “My Custom Screens” folder by default. You can move these to other folders as needed.

Once a screen has been added to a folder, right-click it OR select the screen and click MENU to see available options:
