Many districts use a standard format for Unit/Lesson Plans that are created using eDoctrina within their district. If a standard format exists, it is a good practice to create/configure a customized template before creating any Units or Lessons in eDoctrina. This will enforce consistency and allow for proper alignment when viewing a Curriculum Map or Scope & Sequence Report. This task can only be completed by a District Admin profile type.
To create or manage Unit or Lesson plan templates, follow the steps below, use the navigation bar to find the District Homepage (Settings==>Student Information Data==>Districts).
Locate the district in the displayed list and click the button to enter the District Editor.
Scroll down the District Editor until the Unit Descriptions and Lesson Descriptions are displayed on the screen. All existing Unit and Lesson Plan Templates will be listed in the respective box. A template named -Default description- will be the first option for all districts and will be the first option that users see when creating a Unit or Lesson in eDoctrina's Units Module. This template cannot be deleted and the title of this template cannot be modified; but the fields within can be updated if needed. All other templates that have been created will be listed here and can be modified by District Admins.
Click the button to create a new template.
One the "Create unit description" pop-up window, there are many configuration options that will vary by district and/or template:
Once new unit or lesson plan template has been saved, it will appear in a drop down menu when a new unit or lesson is created.
