How do I link my curriculum map to a class in my lesson planner?

This is part of our Curriculum & Instruction Solution. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

Now that you’ve published your curriculum map, you’re ready to connect your map to your lesson plannerThis article will walk through how to connect your map to a class in the planner, as well as the different options you have when bringing content from the curriculum map into your lesson plans.

Step 1:

Open the Lessons menu at the top of the page, then click Timetable.

Step 2:

Hover your cursor over the class you would like to edit and click the gear icon that appears.

Step 3:

In the following window, click Show Advanced Options, then click the Curriculum tab.

Step 4:

Click the Add a Curriculum Map button.

Note: This button will not work if you have not scheduled this class on your timetable. Click here for more information on how to set up your timetable. 

You will be attaching and scheduling the units of a curriculum map to a class in your planner, so you will want to ensure that there are no units already attached to the time period you wish the units to start. (Generally you will be connecting a map at the beginning of a school year, so this shouldn’t be an issue!)

To check that your units are available, navigate to the Week Planner and check that the Unit Tags are free for the class that you want to add a curriculum map to. You can do this by clicking on the Unit Tags to show if they are blank, and therefore free.

Step 5:

Use the search bar at the top of the pop-up to look for the map name or the tags associated with the map. You can then confirm it is the map you are looking for by selecting it from the list and looking at the attached Standards and Units that appear on the right. Select the Next button to assign this map to your class.

Step 6:

You will now need to schedule your units. This will link units to your lessons according to your schedule, giving you easy access to unit content from your lessons while you are planning.

Select the date you would like to start from.

Once you have chosen your units, click on the Schedule button.

Note: You can select all of the units, or pick just the specific units that you want to connect to your planner starting on the date you choose. If you previously had units attached to your lessons this will overwrite all existing units and replace them.
