I love the technokids photoshop curriculum. I have been teaching Photoshop since CS2, (2002), and I have to relearn it every year because I only use it during the Spring semester. I have been teaching lessons that are similar to your curriculum but I have never had such a clearly defined program. Mostly I have relied on You-tube videos and my own creativity. My school has tried to send me to classes on Photoshop but every time I have enrolled, the classes have been canceled for lack of enrollment. Photoshop is not intuitive. I have books, notes, and an outline of objectives that I have relied on for years. Thank you for producing a product that is written in language that I understand.
