Can you explain the ‘use with’ feature? I can see that if I do use that feature then I can see both items in the ‘daily plan’ – that is good. But, I am curious; when I complete the first assignment does it go away as completed or stay because the other that is tied to it with ‘use with’ isn’t complete? OR does it go away and take the tied assignment away with it as well (even though it may not be finished)?
What I’ve got is a workbook that I want my student to work through and they can do any of the items in any order they want. Since there are several they can choose from and not all are required I opted for a simple method rather than having each section as a resource and listing each requirement (only numbers, not descriptions). This just seemed cumbersome since they could do them in any order – I can’t do that with this system, so as I read somewhere on the forum I just made the title and 2 sections (one for requirements that I can just select worked on every day until the requirement is complete, and another called complete just in case I accidentally mark finished I don’t want it to go away).
Now, I have put all of the sections as their own resource and put them all to ‘use with’ the first section. I’m just fearful that when I finish the first section will it take all of the others tied to it away with it as well? If so then I’ll make the ‘first one’ the one I think will get done last or create an additional resource that I won’t mess with until the entire booklet is done, but everything will be tied to it.
Is this how it works or am I way off base?
Since there isn’t a way to clean up your completed assignments I’m a little leery of testing this out.
The “use with” feature is for “tying together” two resources that you want to use but might not know exactly when you want to start them. So let’s say you have a History book that is in queue for later this year, after two others, and you have a Literature book that you want your student to read at the same time as the History book. You can schedule the Literature book as “use with” the History book, then they will both show up on the Daily Plan at the same time — whenever that History book comes up in the queue. Does that make sense? I’m not sure I’m explaining it clearly.
Well, if you have two resources tied together with ‘use with’ when you complete one of them do they both go away, only the one you finished, or neither?
No, the “use with” only tells them when to pop into the Daily Plan together. After that, they are Worked On or Finished as separate resources.
That is great news! Perfect!
I’m going to use this for Boy Scout requirements… so rather than having everything listed I’ll just have the ranks listed and then he can work on whatever requirements he wants and I’ll just be able to check working every time and make notes as to the requirement he passes off… then when he’s done I select finished and it goes away. He can finish the 2nd before the first, etc.
