If most of your content will be the same between multiple classes (such as Period 1, Period 2, Period 3 of the same English course), try using Roster Sections.
SelectEdit Rosterfrom the Manage Classmenu.
From here you can create new Roster Sections by clicking the Create Sections button.
Once you have created Roster Sections you can add new or existing students to any Section of the class. If your school has imported roster data for you, you may need to link students from import rosters into your class.
By default, Calendar Eventswill be available to all Roster Sections. You can elect to share only with one or a sub-set of sections by un-checking the Publish Event to all sectionsoption.
Roster Sections give Teachers the ability to share not only the calendar, but also course materials and calendars among all the sections, while controlling due dates and page content accessat a more granular level. Students and parents will only see information that is applicable to their Roster Section.
