NOTE: This is an example of a year plan. There is a lot more material to choose from. You should browse through the menus and familiarize yourself with other supplementary material. Relevant vocational material must be supplied for each line of study, either from NDLA or other sources. Some literary texts are included, but more texts should be added to the plan. The node numbers are direct links to the actual page. This year plan will cover the competence aims in our national curriculum (kunnskapsløftet).
