Create a Blank Curriculet

If you’d rather use your own curriculet instead of a pre-built one, you can make one for digital and external texts. To create a blank curriculet:

  1. Go to your Library.
  2. Click on the book you’d like to make a curriculet for.

    Note: If you don’t see the book in your library, see “Add Curriculets to Library.” (will link to post here)
  3. Select Add Curriculet.
  4. Click the Create New button, then click Next to confirm your choice.

  5. Fill the new curriculet details into the accompanying form.
  6. Select whether your students will read the text On Curriculet or Externally.
  7. Click Next to confirm your choice and upload the new curriculet into your Library.

You have now created a blank curriculet and can edit it as needed.

 

Assign an Existing Curriculet

Assigning curriculets allows your class to access the curriculet text and digital copy of the book (if applicable). To assign a curriculet to your class:

  1. Go to your Library.
  2. Click on the book you’d like to assign.
    Note: The curriculet must be a part of your library before you can assign it.
  3. Select Assign to Class.

  4. Choose the class(es) you’d like to assign the curriculet from the dropdown window.

Your class(es) can now access the curriculet!

 

Edit or Copy Existing Curriculets

In order for Curriculet to update pre-built (or “Master”) curriculets regularly, the original copies cannot be edited. If you want to edit a Master curriculet, you can do so through the Curriculet website. To edit a Master curriculet:

  1. Go to your Library.
  2. Click on the book for the curriculet you’d like to copy.

  3. Click the Copy for Editing button. This will create a curriculet titled “Copy of (Book Title)” that, unlike Master curriculets, you can edit.
  4. To add or change the curriculet copy text, click Edit Curriculet.
