Implementation Tips

1. Establish guidelines and norms for highlighting colors with students. For example, have students reserve orange for homework, red for items that require follow-up for the teacher, yellow for standard notes, etc.

2. Ensure that students understand that they must use the upload/cloud feature in order to submit their work. 

3. Utilize available handouts. There are instances in which the eBook instructs a student to cut out pages for an activity. In most cases, we've copied those pages and packaged them for you to download in your eText/PDF section. You can then use those pages as handouts for the students to complete the activity.
