You can add your own reading to any assignment in Writable by editing a prompt. To create a new prompt with a reading, follow these steps.

Edit an Assignment to add a Reading:

1. From 'My Assignments', click the assignment you'd like to edit.

2. Click 'Edit'.

3. In the Prompt section, click the pencil icon to edit the prompt.

Note: If you have more than one prompt, use the drop-down menu to select the prompt you'd like to edit.

4. Next, click 'Readings', then click 'Add Reading'. Select whether you'd like to paste your text to create a reading or if you'd like to upload a PDF.

  • If you choose to upload a PDF, you'll select a PDF from your computer.

  • If you choose to paste your reading, you'll need to copy and paste your reading into the text box and add a title. Use the toolbar to format and style your text. Then, select 'Done'.

Helpful Hints:

  • You can preview your reading by clicking 'Preview' in the upper right corner.

  • If you want to delete the reading, click the 'Trash' icon.

  • You can add multiple readings to a prompt using the same process. Be sure to add titles to label each reading for students.

5. Once you assign it, students will see the reading next to the prompt and their writing.
