Occasionally, a Teacher may schedule a Lesson Plan for a particular day but won't be able to finish it. Rather than copying on the following day (and moving the rest of their lesson plans to accommodate) there's a faster way: Extending the Lesson Plan.
Extending a Lesson Plan will not only duplicate the selected lesson plan but also move any conflicting lesson plans as necessary.
In the example shown above, there are two lesson plans with a one day gap between them. When we extend the first lesson plan, it simply fills in the gap.
However, in this second example, there isn't a gap between the two lesson plans, so when the first lesson is extended it moves the second lesson forwards to compensate.
To extend a lesson plan:
- Make sure you're on the Lesson Plans tab.
- Make sure you are viewing the correct Term.
- Click the arrows in the top right corner of the lesson plan you would like to extend.
- Specify the number of days you would like to extend the lesson plan for.
- Click Extend.
Note: You cannot extend a lesson plan outside of the date range of the selected term.
