1. If you haven't already done so, press the "Remix" button to make a copy of this template in the library of your choice.
2. Use the guide on the next page and the template pages in each section to create a digital lesson activity book that you give to students. Think of this book as student friendly lesson plan that is like a roadmap for learning.
3. Depending on your content, process, and learning environment, determine what the students will produce in order to show what they know. This might mean they each remix this resource (be sure to make that a setting if so) or that they use another book to show their learning.
4. Consider recording your voice as you read the instructions or the prompts for students (some examples have been included), adding in videos of yourself explaining key concepts, and changing the prompts to match your classroom needs.
5. Delete the teacher guide pages before sharing your digital lesson activity book with students in your library.
