Set Teacher Permissions for the Unit Builder

You can allow teachers to edit the contents of a unit, create their own unit, and add links or files to a unit.

When you create a unit in the Unit Builder and assign it to a class, the unit appears in the Lesson Planner for that class. The unit in the administrator’s Unit Builder and the unit in the teacher’s Lesson Planner are the same. Editing the content of a unit in one location automatically updates the other. Teachers can only edit the content of a unit if an admin user with Unit Builder access gives them permission.

To set teacher permissions for the Unit Builder, follow these steps:

  1. On the navigation bar, click Setup > Unit Builder.
  2. Click Settings.

  3. Do any of the following:

    • To enable teachers to edit the Unit Name, select the Allow teachers to edit the content of Units created by administrators check box.

      The Unit Name is the only content affected by this setting. Teachers can always edit the Start Date and End Date of a unit. When a teacher edits a unit with more than one assigned class, the Unit Builder duplicates the unit so the other classes are not affected. An information icon Info Icon indicates that the new unit was “Edited by [Last Name], [First Name].”

    • To enable teachers to create new units in their Lesson Planner, select the Allow teachers to create Units check box.

      When a teacher creates a unit, it appears in the Unit Builder. An information icon Info Icon indicates that this unit was “Created by [Last Name], [First Name].”

    • To enable teachers to add their own files and links to Teacher Resources, select the Allow teachers to add files and links to Teacher Resources check box.

      Teachers cannot edit or delete files that an administrator has added to Teacher Resources.

  4. Click Save.
