  2. Access the Plans tab to internalize and prepare to teach:
    • Your course
    • Your first project
    • Your first checkpoint

Math

  1. Copy your math course from the Base Curriculum 
  2. Access the Plans tab to internalize and prepare to teach:
    • Your course
    • Your first math unit
    • Your first 1-2 lessons

Mentoring

  1. Review your mentee data
  2. Verify that the list of students in your mentoring section in the platform is correct and add/remove students accordingly

Self Direction

  1. Review your school’s expectations, structures, and norms for students completing focus areas
