How do I assign a CommonLit 360 Reading Lesson? How can I customize a CommonLit 360 Reading Lesson?

You will find all Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, Grammar, Discussion, and Related Media Lessons on the Lessons and Materials page of a CommonLit 360 Unit page. To find these units, you can click the CommonLit 360 Curriculum tile on the Home page or click Browse Content at the top of the page and then select 360 Curriculum from the dropdown. You'll then be given the option to select units for grades 6-12 either from the drop down in the middle of the page or from the tabs at the top of the page. 

Once you click the grade level you would like to view units for, on the next page you can select the specific unit you would like to look at. After you've selected a unit, you'll be taken to the Unit Overview page. This page provides a Unit Introduction video, as well as an overview of the Culminating Task for the unit.

From there, you can click on the Lessons & Materials tab to view all of the lessons within that unit. Here you will find the materials needed for a lesson and you can digitally assign a lesson by clicking Show More over on the right.

To assign a Reading Lesson digitally, click Show More and then the Preview or Assign button. You will then see the Student Preview of the lesson while creating the assignment. To create the assignment, click the Assign button in the upper-right.

The Create an Assignment window will then pop out on the left, and from there you can select a class, enable/disable Reading Modalities, turn on/turn off requiring answers to Instructional In-Text Questions, choose whether to assign all assessment questions or just multiple-choice questions, select a start date and due date, and customize the assignment directions if needed. Once you have made your selections, you will then click the Assign button below the Customize Directions section.
