The Lesson Plans by Subject paradigm allows you to create and edit lesson plan sets that are automatically linked to subjects within a given academic Term. Although you lose the ability to share lesson plans, lesson plans from previous academic terms are now automatically archived and new lessons are created when you activate a new term.
However, if you’re already used to using the Daily Lesson Sets paradigm - QuickSchools' classic, shareable version of the lesson plans, and you want to transition to the new subject-based lesson plans, the old shareable lesson plans will become archived. And you will immediate start getting NEW lesson plans set for each subject. If you want to re-use some of the older lesson plan sets, by keeping them linked to the most recent subject, you’ll need to contact our technical support.
To assist in this transition, the Lesson Plans Reports section of Summary Reports has a report called “Lesson Plan Subjects”. This report will show all the subjects that are linked to existing Lesson Plans.
If there are lesson plans sets that are not linked, or linked to the wrong subject, you can re-link the subjects simply by accessing the Lesson Plans set, and select a subject for it. To do this, go to your Daily Lesson Plans page of the Lesson Plans module and click the "Select Subject" link under "Want to post homework notes?":
The current “Lesson Plans by Subject” system is still Beta. So you’ll need to request it from our tech support, if you’d like to try it out. And we can help you with the transition, if you’d like to move the existing Lesson Plans (instead of archiving them).
