How do I edit Projects?

Once you've created or copied a Project, you can edit the Project to add or edit the Final Product(s), checkpoints, activities, and resources. From the Project page, click Edit Project in the upper right to make changes to the following sections:

Project Info

  • Project Name: Edit the name of the Project
  • Courses: Enter and select the Course you’d like the Project to belong to. A project can be in multiple Courses
  • Project Info: You can change the Essential Question, Enduring Understanding, and the Description of the Project. You can also view the Adaptations And Modifications provided by the Curriculum Team
  • Decide whether you'd like the Project to be supplementary by checking the Supplementary Project checkbox. Supplementary Projects can be added to courses toward the end of the year for projects that will be completed after school has already ended
  • Decide whether you'd like to allow teachers from other schools and districts to use this Project by checking the Curriculum Sharing checkbox. Learn more about sharing your curriculum

Final Product

  • Activities and Resources: You can view the Activities and Resources that are under each Checkpoint and add your own. Click Add Activity or Add Resource under the relevant Checkpoint.

Focus Areas

  • In order to add Focus Areas to the Project, you must first add the Project to a Course (see the Project Info section above)
  • If the Project already belongs to a Course, you’ll see the Focus Areas that are in that course. Check the boxes next to the Focus Areas that are relevant to the Project

Teaching Materials

  • Pacing: The amount of time it will take to complete the Project
  • Materials: The supply list for the Project. Click Add to upload your own list of supplies from your Google Drive. Keep in mind that if you change this file in your Google Drive later, you'll have to re-upload it for others to see the changes
  • Standards: The standards that the Project covers

When you’re finished editing the Project, click Save and Close to exit.

Keep in mind that the Project will save automatically while you are editing each section. You can see what time the Project was last saved at the bottom of the page.

Important Note: Once you edit a Project, you will not be able to accept updates to the Project from the Base Curriculum without overriding your edits. In order to both preserve your edits and accept updates, you will have to manually update the Project by editing it to mirror the changes made in the Base Curriculum.
