Bug Description

It is a common use case for a teacher to have more than one section of the same course (an Algebra teacher with 5 sections of Algebra I for example). There should be a way to create a grade book activity and apply it to more than one section. There is no reason to limit this to copying an activity between sections of the same course either. A teacher may want to have a holiday activity, for example, that the assign to students in all of their classes.

This is going to be implemented as activity libraries attached to people and/or courses.

We are not going to implement activity libraries so as not to over-complexify the data model, so we will instead create views that allow the user to select activities from other sections, even years, to be copied into the current worksheet. Then the user will have another view to copy a given activity to multiple sections in the current year. That form will list the sections and the underlying worksheets, allowing the user to click on the copy targets.
