How do I share my lesson plans to Google Classroom?

This is a feature available to Chalk Gold subscribers and teachers whose schools are subscribed to the Instruction Solution. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

This article will show you how to share lessons from Planboard to your existing Google Classroom. The lessons will be added as a public link, and any saved changes made to the original lessons will be viewable by the students in your Google Classroom. You can share either single lessons, a day's worth of lessons, or a week's worth of lessons for all subjects.

Please complete your Google Classroom setup before attempting to share lessons through Planboard.

Note: If sharing a Day or Week's worth of lessons, anyone with the public link will be able to see all lessons for the chosen timeframe. Please be mindful not to include information in your lesson plans that you don't want others to access.

Step 1:

The first step to sharing to Google Classroom depends on how many lessons you wish to share.

To share a single lesson: Navigate to the lesson you wish to share to Google Classroom from any view in Planboard. Open the lesson and click the Options drop-down menu in the lesson editor, then click on Classroom.

To share a full day of lessons: Navigate to the day you wish to share to Google Classroom from the Day View in Planboard. Click the Share button in the top-right corner of the window, then click on the Classroom tab.

To share a full week of lessons: Navigate to the week you wish to share to Google Classroom from the Week View in Planboard. Click the Share button in the top-right corner of the window, then click on Classroom.

Step 2:

Select which type of post to make on Google Classroom from the drop-down menu and add any additional information, such as the title or instructions for your post. Click Share to move on to the next step.

Note: Don't worry, you will still be able to review and edit this information before it posts to your Google Classroom.

Step 3:

In the pop-up window, log in to your Google Account with your credentials. If you have browser cookies enabled, you will not need to log in each time you share a lesson to Google Classroom.

Click Next to continue.

Step 4:

Select the class you would like to share your lesson to from the Choose Class drop-down menu.

Step 5:

Here you can edit the details of your Google Classroom post, such as the title and instructions, which students can see the post, or the due date and point total if you are posting your lesson as an assignment. Your lesson will be attached to the post under "Materials", and the information you entered in Step 2 will already be filled in for the appropriate fields.

When you have finished entering the information you want to send to your Google Classroom, click Post.

Optional: You can schedule your lesson to be posted at a particular time by clicking on the three dots in the top-right corner of the window, then clicking Schedule.

Select the date and time you would like your lesson to be made available to your students, then click Schedule to finish.

Step 6:

Your lesson has now been posted to your Google Classroom! Students can click on the attached link to view the lesson in their browsers. You can click the "View" button to open a browser tab to see your Google Classroom post.
