To assign a Sequence, head to a Module within the Learning Dashboard. Click the “Sequences” button at the top of the Module navigation bar.
The Sequences page will then show each of the Sequences available within that Module.
The Red tags underneath the Sequence dictate the NGSS performance expectations for the Sequence. Orange tags are Disciplinary Core Ideas. Blue tags are Science and Engineering Practices, and Green tags are Crosscutting concepts.
To view a sequence, simply click the “View Sequence” button below each sequence. For instance, let’s check out Balance Within Ecosystems from the Ecology Module.
At the bottom of the page, you can view each of the quests in Tyto Online that comprise this Sequence. To view the quests details within each part of the sequence, just click the arrow at the rightmost side of the tab.
If you’d prefer to assign a single quest inside this sequence, you can do so with the “Assign Single Quest” button. Otherwise, click “Assign Sequence” at the bottom of the page to assign the entire sequence to a class.
Assigning a Sequence follows the same format as regular assignment of content where educators simply select the students or classes and to queue now or on a date, and create the assignment.
One thing that is unique to Sequences, is that they are long enough that you will likely not do them all in one session or class period. If you choose to queue a Sequence on a specific date, you can select separate dates for the different parts of the Sequences to schedule them along with your class progress.
For example, this Sequence could be be completed across Monday and Wednesday's classes, to set up a Friday discussion about ecosystem balance and if we're able to make sustainable biodomes in the real world, and how we would do that.
Once you are satisfied with whom to assign the sequence to, and if/when you are going to break up the sequence’s quests, simply click “Create Assignments.”
