You can edit the assignment instructions, prompts, and rubrics for any assignment in "Explore". If you'd prefer to start from scratch and build an assignment yourself, just do the following:
1. Once you log into Writable, you'll see a blue "+" button in two places:
In a tile at the top of the "Explore" page...
and in the lower, right corner of the "My Assignments" page.
2. Click the "+" button to start creating your assignment.
STEP 1: Create Your Prompt
1. Click the "Step 1: Create Your Prompt" button.
2. Click in the text box and type your prompt or copy and paste it from another doc.
3. Click in the image box, "Click to Select Image", to add an image to your prompt.
4. Type a video url into the "Video Link" to add a video to your prompt, if you'd like.
6. Click "Done", in the lower right corner, when you're done.
STEP 2: Select Your Rubric
