When you first access this page, you'll see your current tab/section layout. These are the tabs you'll see when editing your lessons. You can click the "Sample Layouts" button to select a default layout. 


These can be renamed and ordered in any way. To reorder your sections, just click and drag the section you wish to reorder to a new location.

To add a new section/tab, enter a name in one of the unused slots and check the box to the left of the section name. 

Please note, that the designated fields for “My List”, “Standards”, and “School List” cannot be utilized for another section.

You can see which sections are reserved for those items by referring to the column to the right of the section/tab names.
