Tip Sheet #2 Vol. II - September 20, 2022

Can you believe it? It is almost the first day of autumn. This year, the Fall Equinox will land on September 23, 2022. Our days are getting shorter and our nights longer. Students are finally back in their school routine and Teachers are diving into curriculum. 

As our students learn about gratitude and practice saying "Thank you," here at TeacherMade we want you to know how grateful we are for each of you! Thank you for being innovative in your classroom and for doing what you do! Your students appreciate you and will even learn to say those words some day. ;)

Archiving Assignments ✔️

You can now Archive Assignments. By archiving assignments, you are putting them in another folder where you can easily access or ‘restore’ them to TeacherMade. This is especially powerful for Teachers who want to transition from last year’s assignments and submissions to a new year. 

*The old work will still be there and be and be easily accessible, but you will be able to start the year with a clean slate!
