Tips for Distributing Customizable Lessons

Below are sample workflows to efficiently distribute customizable lessons to your students.

Sharing customizable lessons via email

  1. Create the lesson and save it in your "My Lessons" list.
  2. Download the student PDF with the "Download to Distribute" link.
  3. Find the PDF in your computer's Downloads folder.
  4. Add it as an attachment in a group email to your students.
  5. Each student can open their own lesson in PDF viewing software (such as Adobe Acrobat Reader or Apple Preview), fill it out, and re-save it, adding their name to the document title for identification.
  6. Then each student can add their edited PDF as an attachment to an email back to you.

Using Customized Lessons via Google Classroom

  1. Create the lesson and save it in your "My Lessons" list.
  2. Download the student PDF with the "Download to Distribute" link.
  3. Find the PDF in your computer's Downloads folder.
  4. In Google Classroom, create an Assignment and attach the PDF to it.
  5. On the Assignment creation screen, choose "Make a copy for each student". That will allow each student to have an editable version of the PDF to complete.
  6. In the "Instructions" field, we recommend asking students to rename the PDF to include their name for identification.
  7. Students can then view the assignment, download the PDF, fill it out, re-save it to include their name in the title, and submit the assignment.
  8. You can then view each student's completed PDF lesson, adding grades and comments.
