New to Canvas, previously used Google Classroom. I teach 8th grade social studies. There are are four of us in my school teaching 8th grade SS (mix of regular and advanced classes). Is there a way to set up a sandbox course where we can build common lessons, announcements, etc. and then export things to each of our individual Canvas courses? Is there a way to make a Page and/or Assignment in one of my course, and copy it over to my other courses? In Google Classroom, I could post one Assignment, Announcement, etc. to all my classes (courses) at once. We don't want to cross-list if we don't have to. Thanks for help guiding us through this!
