What is the Assignment Library?
In the Assignment Library, you'll be able to browse, preview, and create assignments for your classes. To access the Assignment Library, click the "Browse & Assign" button at the top of your page.
NoRedInk's writing and grammar curriculum is organized in the Assignment Library under three sections: Practice, Writing, and Assessment. You can click on a section to explore relevant activities and topics.
When you choose Practice or select one of the Assessment activities, you'll be able to select topics to build your assignment.
In the Writing section, you'll select the activity you want to use and can start building your assignment by selecting pre-made prompts and writing genres (currently available for Quick Writes and Guided Drafts only).
