This paper recommends good practices for writing each of the sections of the course outline of record. Sections covered are Catalog Description, Class Schedule Description, Need/Justification, Objectives/Student Outcomes, Prerequisite Skills, Course Content, Assignments, Methods of Instruction and Evaluation, and Texts and Instructional Materials. The focus of the recommendations is to provide course outlines which are thorough and comprehensive of the Title 5 standards as well as providing complete descriptions of actual classroom practices which are sufficient for articulation.
