Click "+ Add New" then "Activity"

Select the type of Learning Activity you would like to build by clicking the dropdown arrow

Choose a Skillbuilder type

You will see explanations for how each Skillbuilder type works. For this demonstration we will build a "Sentence Editing" activity. In this type of activity students are presented with the incorrect sentences with a second version for them to revise using a text-editing tool. These revisions are focused on fixing grammatical errors. Students may print their results out for class discussion or follow up.

Give the activity a title, choose a class and select a due date

The Student Directions will automatically be filled in, but you can edit them if you wish.
