You can create any number of prompts for your students to complete. Prompts can also link to specific readings, Google Docs, or have embedded videos.
Once you have found an assignment and have saved it to 'My Assignments':
1. Click on 'My Assignments' and click on the assignment you want to create a prompt for.
2. Click on the 'Edit' button.
3. Next, click on the 'Prompt Text Will Appear Here in Student View'.
4. Click '+ New Prompt' in the top right corner.
5. Use the drop-down menu to select 'Simple Prompt' or 'Prompt with a Reading'.
6. Next, select 'Let's Go'.
7. Click 'Write Prompt.'
8. Write your 'Prompt' into the text box, add a 'Video Link' (if you'd like), and upload an 'Image'.
Note: Click the 'Preview' button at the bottom right of the screen to see a preview of your prompt and make adjustments if necessary. Click 'Next' when you’re happy with your prompt and are ready to keep going.
9. The prompt tutorial also includes directions if you would like to include optional features, click on the links for detailed directions when adding RevisionAid or additional Scaffolds in your assignment.
10. Finally, give your assignment a title. Your assignment should have a different title from the other assignments you've saved to 'My Assignments' and should be student-friendly. Students will see the title of the assignment in their accounts once it is assigned.
Click 'Preview' to see your assignments as students will see it or click 'Finish' to complete it.
Note: You can share your assignment on social media or individually with colleagues by clicking on the icons. Shareable links are not intended for student use.
11. Your new assignment will now be listed under your 'Inactive Assignments' and can be assigned to students or shared with other teachers at your school.
The prompt you just created will be selected by default but you can also check additional prompts that you want students to complete or choose from by clicking 'Copy or Select for Students'.
If you need to edit your prompt after publishing it, just click 'Edit' and make your changes.
If you decide you don't want to use that prompt with students after all, just click 'Hide from Students' to prevent them from seeing it.
