# Using Github Classroom to set up your Team Story Assignments Repository
[Github Classroom](https://classroom.github.com/classrooms) allows teachers to create individual assignments and group assignments that can be given to teams of students, to work on them in private or public repositories (in our case: private).
In this short guide I use the major two story assignments for the semester as the example case to show you how to set up the team repository. In less than five minutes you will have a private repository for your team's stories, reporting memos, data, methodology notes, drafts and final stories. You will file the required story assignments to your instructors by putting everything in your team repository.
## 1. Get the team repository link and sign in Github
You will receive a link (something like `http://classroom.github.com/group-assignment-invitations/something`) in an email from your instructor to create your team repository. After you click on the link, the Github page will ask you to sign up for an account or sign in to your existing account.
## 2. Create your team
The next screen will ask you to accept the assignment, in this case "storiesrepo".
Create a new team by adding a team name (environment, for example) and click on +Create team.
