Learning Tab

Once in the Learning tab, you will be able to view and complete content within the course syllabus.

TIP: It is recommended you view the content one unit at a time by clicking on your current unit number at the top of the tab. Clicking All is discouraged because it will open all units and lessons which can overwhelm the platform, causing it to run slowly.

NOTE: Unit 0 contains the Course Resources. Course Resources include the Pacing Guide, Parent and Teacher Guide, Materials List, and more.
