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

The Plans tab allows you to work from agendas (either from the Base Curriculum or your own) to help with 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 and view the Plans, you will be viewing the Shared Template that everyone from your school sees. In order to modify the Plans for your own class, you will need to make your own copy of the Plans using the dropdown in the upper right. This creates a personal copy of the Project agenda for yourself that you can customize without affecting other teachers who teach the course.
