Is sous vide considered a technique? I've always wondered about what's considered a cooking method.

Saute, steam, boil, poach, broil, grill, deep fry, roast. That's eight. :)

What about smoke, cure, marinate (as in ceviche), dry or dehydrate? Are those considered cooking or processing?

Again this is a lot to do with what they want you to know. Off the top of my head I can come up with many. Wet: Poaching, steaming, boiling, simmering.
Dry: Roasting, grilling, sauteing, frying, deep frying, broiling, baking. Combination: Stewing, braising.
Then there are miscellaneous as cheflayne mentioned but I don't think they would be included as cooking techniques in a curriculum.

cooking methods

in addition to your list of which i agree, we also have glazing [white meat or vegetables] and butter roasting [mainly used for chicken]

simmering and boiling we consider as one, as it is only the temperature which is lower in simmering.

curing and others mentioned are preservation methods.
