Lesson Plans by Month & Copy Lessons from Archive (Private Beta)

August 4, 2015

We’ve been building out from our Lesson Plans by Subject and Lesson Plan Dates updates and have some cool new views to share. These work with the Lesson Plans by Subject feature and allow teachers to view a long-term calendar of lessons as well as copy them forward from the school archive of past terms’ lessons. Here’s a quick look at the setup.

The Lesson Plans by Month view works a lot like the the Lesson Plans by Subject view, and even the Gradebook. Simply select a subject that you’re teaching and the lesson plans you have setup for the current term view will appear on their lesson date. Also, you can mouse over a day, click the “Add Daily Lesson” button to add a new lesson for that day.

You can drag and drop the lesson around to a different day, and right click to edit the lesson:

In addition, one of the coolest features of the by Month view is that “Copy Lessons” button at the top. It directs you to a wizard that helps you migrate past terms’ lessons forward so as to view and update lessons for a new term. From the wizard, you can select which term and subject you’d like copy forward from the archive.

Then, the calendar is autofilled with your copied-forward lessons:

Now, you have a long-term view of an updated lesson set!

For reference, here’s a quick checklist of how to copy lessons forward from this view:

  1. Select the semester for the archived lesson plans you want to copy into the current term
  2. Select the subjects’ lessons you want to copy forward. Any subject from any grade can be migrated into your current term.
  3. Set a start date for the lessons – the lessons will copy forward in the same sequence as in the archive, starting on the day of the start date
  4. Confirm copy
  5. Drag-and-drop and edit lessons for the new term as you see fit

This feature is still in private beta, so if you would like to test it out, please contact our customer support to get it setup in your account. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on it too.
