Step 2

Select a lesson category to view the lessons available (e.g., Mini Debates).

Step 3

After you have chosen a lesson category, select the Digital filter from the Select Format drop-down menu so that the lessons within that category will be filtered by digital.

Choose a lesson to view the digital tasks available to assign as homework (e.g., Cell Phones in Class).

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Selecting the Task Player button allows you to preview the tasks you're sending as homework in Assignment Manager. 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.

Use the checkboxes to choose which of your students in this class will receive this assignment. You can also leave it as it is with all the checkboxes ticked off to assign to your whole class. Click on Continue to choose the tasks you would like to assign.

Note: You can always click on the i to view the instructions.

Selecting Individual Students will 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.

Step 7

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.

You can also set the Start Date and Due Date individually for each task.

Step 8

Click Assign once you have finished selecting dates for the homework tasks.

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.

Note: To cancel assigned tasks, click on the Assignments tab under the class the tasks were assigned to.

On the Assignments page, click the More Options (...) menu by the lesson you want to remove and select Delete.

Click on Delete Assignment to confirm.
