* All Diploma Programme courses are designed as two-year learning experiences. However, up to two standard level subjects, excluding languages ab initio and pilot subjects, can be completed in one
year, according to conditions established in the Handbook of procedures for the Diploma Programme.

1. Course outline

Use the following table to organize the topics to be taught in the course. If you need to include topics that cover other requirements you have to teach (for
example, national syllabus), make sure that you do so in an integrated way, but also differentiate them using italics. Add as many rows as you need.

This document should not be a day-by-day accounting of each unit. It is an outline showing how you will distribute the topics and the time to ensure that students
are prepared to comply with the requirements of the subject.

This outline should show how you will develop the teaching of the subject. It should reflect the individual nature of the course in your classroom and should not
just be a "copy and paste" from the subject guide.

If you will teach both higher and standard level, make sure that this is clearly identified in your outline.
