By default all stories written by students must be approved by their class room teacher before being shared with parents. 

Teacher's can access their Pending Stories through the email notifications they are sent once a story is submitted, or through the Pending Stories Page, which will allow you to review all of your outstanding stories.

Quickly Approve Your Stories

As you scroll down your Pending Stories list, you'll see the option to quickly Approve or Rework stories.

If you approve the story, it will be shared with the student's family right away and you'll be able to send the student a comment about their work. 

If your return the work for reworking, the story will not be published and students will find it sitting in their Draft Stories to continue working on it. You can leave a comment for the students advising them why it is not yet ready to be published.

Detailed  Story Review

If you wish to make any changes to the story submitted, or wish to add curriculum links or goals, you can click Edit to open the story fully.

In this view you'll also see any comments the student added to their work for teachers to read before reviewing their story. 

Before approving the story, you can determine whether parents are notified that the story has been posted. 

Once you're ready to approve the work or return it for amendments, select the Approve or Rework option. In the pop up you can leave a comment as well as choosing to jump to the next story in edit mode.
