You may want to create a lesson plan outside of your current timetable and not associated with a schedule. Perhaps you have a new subject next term and want to create material ahead of time or maybe you’re role is within the district and you create reusable lesson content for other teachers to import and use within their class.
Step 1: Navigate to the Resources Portal
Open the main Navigation Menu
Select the Resources Portal
The Resources Portal is where you will find all of the Lessons, Lesson Groups and other items that have been shared to you or that you have shared to others. To learn more about Collaboration and Sharing see this link.
Step 2: Create a Lesson
There are many things you can do from within the Resources Portal - browse shared lessons, search for reusable items shared to you and create new reusable lessons to share with others.
Click the Create a Lesson button.
Give your new lesson a title and select whether you want to begin with a template or start fresh with a blank page.
Step 3: Add Content to your Lesson Plan
You’re almost done! The final step is to add content to your new shared lesson plan. This is done the same way as in other areas of Chalk -- simply add text, images, video or other elements to the editing canvas. Don’t forget to add attachments from your computer or from Google Drive or link to external sites or resources on the Internet if appropriate.
Just as with other shared lessons you can import your new lesson into specific classes on your schedule. Either overwrite or shift existing lessons to accommodate your new lesson and you’re done.
Of course you don’t have to import your new shared lessons right away. You can plan entire units or classes directly within the Resources Portal and then, when ready, import them to Planboard to associate with relevant Standards and Curriculum.
