CommonLit offers units for grades 3-12 to facilitate 2-4 weeks of aligned lesson plans around an essential question or inquiry topic. You can browse our units here.
It is not currently possible to assign an entire unit at once on CommonLit. Instead, you will need to assign all of the texts within a unit individually.
To do so, click on Library > Units > Select a unit. Then, click the "Assign Text" button for a text you wish to assign, complete the remaining details such as the classes or individual student groups to which you’d like to assign the text, and then click the final "Assign" button. Repeat this step for any other texts you wish to assign from the unit.
Please note: the remaining assignment types, such as the Cross-Textual Questions, Vocabulary Activities, and Final Assessments, are not currently assignable digitally within CommonLit. If you wish to assign any of these assignments to your students, you can download PDFs by clicking the "Download" button and then sharing it with students in an LMS, such as Google Classroom or Canvas, or over email.
