Here's the solution to the calendar challenge. In order to add an internet calendar, I added a calendar the same way I add regular calendars, which is by clicking on Open Calendar. But, instead of selecting a new blank Calendar, this time, I'm going to choose from the Internet. Here, I'm going to paste in the calendar link which was available in the Exercise files. And I'm going to go ahead and click OK. It gives me some opportunities to configure this calendar, or I can just accept it the way that it is. I'm going to go ahead and click Yes, because I want the calendar to come in directly as it shows up. Now you can see that this calendar was added underneath the My Calendar section.
However, I'd like to know US holidays as I'm planning out my instruction. In order to get it to the Orange Valley School group, I can go ahead and select this calendar and drag it all the way down here. Or with my Orange Valley School group selected and the US holiday calendar selected, I can save a new group from these three selected calendars. Because I already have my Orange Valley School group created, I'm simply going to select the US calendars, drag it down to the Orange Valley School section and release. And I'll now see all three of these calendars in the same location.
Now the last thing I'd like to do is be able to overlay these calendars so that I can see when holidays are as I'm laying out my seventh and eighth grade instructions. To do this I'm going to use the small arrow at the left, and by pressing it once it's going to go ahead and take the far left calendar and overlay the two calendars together. So here I have the US holidays tab selected, and I can see the US. Holidays are coming in. Furthermore, I can still see in the same calendar view, my Eight Grade events. By selecting the Eight Grade tab, their events will become brighter, and it will fade the US Holidays to the background.
This way, I can quickly lay out my instructional year, being sure not to plan any school assignments on the same day as a major US holiday.
