Select the Digital filter from the Select Format drop-down menu.
The lesson categories will adjust to only show those that contain digital tasks and activities. You can also see the categories that contain digital tasks by looking for the computer icon below the category title.
Please note that we are gradually adding digital tasks to most of our categories. You will start to see the computer icon added to more and more categories and lessons over time.
Select a lesson category to view the digital lessons available (e.g., Discussion Starters).
After you have chosen a lesson category, select the Digital filter again from the Select Format drop-down menu so that the lessons within that category will also be filtered by digital. Choose a lesson to view the digital tasks available to assign as homework (e.g., Pandemics).
On the lesson page, you will see three options. The PDF Viewer button will open that lesson as a PDF (Teacher or Student). The Task Player button allows you to view or present the digital tasks associated with that lesson. The Assignment Manager button allows you to send digital assignments to your class or students.
When you click the Task Player button, you will be taken to another page where you can view or present the tasks that are associated with this lesson. Click on the task name under Task List to select a task and hit Start to launch the task. You can also click on the apple icon by the task name to see the answer key (grey means there is no answer key for this task). You can always click on the X to exit.
Clicking on the Assignment Manager button will allow you to send digital assignments to your classes or individual students.
Select Classes to assign tasks to a whole class. You will be taken to another page where you can select one of your classes. Click on Continue to assign tasks to one of your classes.

Select Individual Students to assign tasks to specific students. You will be taken to another page where you can select one of your students. Click on Continue to assign tasks to one of your students.
On the Assign Tasks page, you can set your optional Start Date as well as the Due Date for tasks that you would like to assign as homework for that class. If you'd like to assign all the tasks from the lesson, click on the Select All box.
You can then choose the Set Start Date and Set Due Date for all tasks or choose Clear Dates to start over.
Click Assign once you have finished selecting dates for the homework tasks.
A Homework Assigned pop-up window will appear to confirm the homework has been sent to your class. You can also share this assignment with your students on Google Classroom by clicking the green icon above the Okay button. Click Okay to close the window.

Your students can view their homework assignments on their homepage after logging in at esllibrary.com/students. They can click on the lesson to see their homework task(s) for that lesson.
Students can click Start beside the task name to launch that homework task. They can attempt each task repeatedly until they have gotten all of the answers correct. Their first score, best score, and number of attempts will be documented.
You can check on the progress of your student(s) by going to Class Prep and then clicking on My Classes.
On this page, you will choose the class you want to view results for.
Once you are in the class, you can view the results by student or by task via the Assignments tab.
