Who are Classroom Resources?

3. Click Next.
4. In the Select a Destination panel, select the location where you want the folder to be placed, for example, the Desktop. Click Next.
5. In the Extraction Complete panel, select Show extracted files. Check Finish. The unzipped files appear in a new window.
