There are two ways to create an assignment:
- If you already know the CommonLit text that you want to assign to students, simply click “Add Assignment” on your “Assignments” page. You will be prompted to select the text you want to assign, the classes or individual students groups to which you’d like to assign it, and a due date.
- If you’re not sure what CommonLit text you want to assign to students, visit our featured content or library pages. You can then browse, search, and filter through our collection to find a text that fits what you’re looking for. You can also search for content on our themes, book pairings, text set, or units pages. When you identify the text you want to assign, go to the text page and click the “Assign Text” button above the text’s title. You will then be prompted to select the classes or individual student groups to which you’d like to assign the text, and a due date.
