How do I add agendas to my Projects in the Plans tab?

The Plans tab allows you to work from Base Curriculum agendas (or your own) to help Project pacing and planning. Each Project is broken down into Days, which contain their own agenda items.

To access the Plans tab:

  1. Go to a Project
  2. Click Plans to the right of Overview

The first time you open a Project, you will need to click Copy Project Agenda. This creates a personal copy of the Project agenda for yourself that you can customize without affecting other teachers who teach the course. For information on editing Projects, learn more here.
