If you really want to teach apologetics, you really need to make it your own. Focus on the most typical objections and go from there. There are a ton of great books out there that can help you. Tactics by Koukl, Reasonable Faith by Craig, Christian Apologetics by Groothuis, and all the Strobel books. They will give you a great jumping off point.

A lot of people aren't going to become masters at this stuff, so depending on your audience you may need to water it down a bit. For example, when I talk to my wife I can use philosophical terminology because she gets that kind of stuff. But, when I try to explain the same thing to my parents, I have to use a more layman-esque terminological style (yes, those are my made-up words haha)!

So, like J. says, there is no perfect curriculum. You just have to know the stuff and be able to design it around your intended audience.

Most of you are surely familiar with Lee Strobel's books "Case for Faith", "Case for a Creator", and "Case for Christ" but did you know they also come in "For Kids" and "Student Edition" versions? Excellent age appropriate presentations covering much the same scope of the "adult" versions. Great for parents or grandparents to go over with their children/youth or to be used in church training.
