How do I create Lesson Plan Templates for my school?

This is part of our Chalk Solutions. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

Lesson Plan Templates give teachers a starting point when organizing lessons so that they don't have to start from scratch. As an administrator you can create templates that are accessible to all teachers in the institution so they won't have to create their own, or have an example to work off of. 

This article will go over how you can create a Lesson Plan Template for your Institution or School! 

Step 1:

To create a template that can be used by the entire institution, start by selecting the Templates option from the Admin app menu.

To create a template for a specific school or group, select School or Groups in the Admin menu, then the school or group you'd like to create the template for. Then select the Templates tab.

Step 2:

Select Add Template in the top right corner, under your profile icon. 

Step 3:

Here you will be able to create your Template using the same text editor used throughout Chalk. This allows for the creation of rich content including tables, images, videos, hyperlinks and more!

Note: Be sure to add a title to your lesson plan template so that teachers can easily identify it when they want to use it.

Using the Templates for Lessons in Planboard

All templates created in the Admin app will be available to accounts within that institution when they go to Templates in the Planboard menu. 

Note: If you create a lesson plan template within a School/Group it will only be available to accounts that are within that School/Group

From Templates is where you or teachers can View the template as well as Assign it to subjects. For more information on how teachers assign templates within Planboard to a single class click here.

Not only will teachers see templates that have been created for them, they will also be able to create their own template as outlined in this support article.

Note: Templates created by an Admin can NOT be edited by individual accounts from Planboard. These can only be viewed and assigned. If they'd like to edit this template they will need to manually copy it from the View page and paste into a new template they create themselves.
