Assign a Discussion Prompt
You can assign discussions to your class, and students can participate in discussions you create.
To start a discussion with your class, you can create a discussion prompt, or use an existing discussion prompt.
Assigned discussion prompts become active discussions.
Prompts are not available to all districts and teachers.

Before you assign Realize content to an imported Google Classroom class, ensure all students have accepted the invitation. Students do not receive assignments that were assigned to a class prior to accepting the Google Classroom invitation.
- Students in classes linked using Google Classroom Account Linking must click the Realize Login item in their class Stream to connect to Realize. Until then, they will not receive assignments from Realize.
For both imported and linked Google Classroom classes: Click Sync with Google for any assignments assigned to the students before they've connected from Google Classroom to Realize.
- Click Assign to finish.
Once a discussion prompt is assigned, it appears in both the Active discussions list and your assignments list. Students can now participate in the discussion by posting comments and responses.
Discussions are different from other assignments in that students do not have a Turn In option. They are automatically turned in at midnight in the student's time zone on the due date.
