Hi! I am new to the CM Organizer. I wonder if I am just overthinking matters but here is my predicament: I am wanting to divide my school year into the 3 terms but I’m not sure how I should enter our lessons and book materials accordingly. For example, my 2nd Edition Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt has a total of 180 Lessons. When I add this resource to my schedule, should I list all 180 lessons or should I only add the 60 lessons of Term 1 and add Term 2’s later? I feel like this is a silly question but I am struggling with how to separate my terms in the CM Organizer and how to show the start and end dates of each term and what lessons we covered. Does this make sense? Help! I’m such a newbie (but I’m really excited to get started!) Thanks so much.Jordan SmithKeymaster
You could do it either way!
The CM Organizer doesn’t currently keep track of terms, so you could schedule all 180 lessons and then you’ll have the freedom to move through it at whatever pace actually happens. So if you don’t quite finish all 60 of the Term 1 lessons this term, the unfinished lessons will be on your schedule for the next term.
Or, if you want to divide into terms, you could just schedule the first 60 lessons, then for Term 2 you can schedule the next 60, and so on. If you do it that way, the CM Organizer will combine all the lessons into a single resource on your reports.
Does that help?laurensheridan11Participant
That is very helpful. Thank you! I think the CM Organizer is beginning to make a lot of sense now!
