The teaching template is designed to quickly get a course site up and running. The menu’s Home page serves as an introduction to the course and provides class times and professor information.  The Syllabus, Course Schedule, and Resources  tabs provide easy to edit pages for your class.  The Posts tab is a place where professors can post an assignment and have students post their responses or reflections. Since the theme automatically activates the “Category Sticky Post” plugin, you can group your assignments by category, with the assignment at the top of the blogroll.

Also automatically activated, the “Reckoning” plugin aggregates posts by student and category to simplify performance evaluation.

Below is an example of what a teaching site could look at.  You can view this demo site online.
