Maybe you gave a pretest and realized your class is ready for a topic from a higher grade level, or you realized a refresher lesson on a topic from a past year is needed! You can always modify curriculum to meet the varying needs of different students in your class. Tailor content in your Curriculum tab in order to create assignments using content from other grade levels.
Log into your teacher account at www.tenmarks.com/login/user.
Select your class from the drop-down menu in the upper, right corner of the page to specify which Curriculum you would like to view.
1. ADD CONTENT
In TenMarks, you can add content from any grade level to your Curriculum using the Add Content button. After clicking on the + icon, a new tile (see below) will open. From this tile, you can search (a) for topics by key word or standard, assign the track directly to students (b), add the content to your Curriculum (c), or get more information about the track (d).
When you place your cursor over the track name, it will highlight the track. You can drag and drop the track into your Curriculum from here. If you do not assign the content to a section, it will automatically be placed in Miscellaneous.
Tip: If you "Add all tracks" for the grade level to populate the selection of Miscellaneous options, you can more easily drag and drop your tracks into your Units.
Note: Only 10 tracks can be added from other grade levels for Free classrooms.
2. UNIT TITLE
This is the title for the unit. In this instance, we have named this unit “Unit 1.” If you want to change the name of a unit, click on the title and and type in the new name for the unit.
3. PROGRESS THROUGH UNIT TRACKS
This progress indicator lets you know how many tracks you have assigned out of the total listed in the unit. The blue line running just beneath this gives you a visual representation of this progress.
4. TRACK TILES
You can find the standard associated with the track as well as the title on the track tile. The icon at the end of the track will also help you quickly identify whether you have (e) or have not (f) assigned the track to your students.
5. NEW UNIT
You can organize your Curriculum into different units. When you want to add a new unit, click the + icon and a blue box will appear (g). Type in the name of your new unit and hit the enter or return key on your keyboard.
When the new unit has been created, you will get a confirmation message (h) and the new section will appear. You can reorder the Units and Tracks by dragging and dropping them into the order you prefer.
