How to Organize Your Google Classroom
Having a hard time with figuring out how to utilize your Google Classroom for your students? Check on the video tutorials below. New to Google Classroom? Click on how to get started!
Take your 1 or 2 week unit and package it for students using Google Apps. This gives them the ability to work at their own pace with interactive activities that are embedded within the document. Best thing for you - they turn it in when they are done and you can just grade it once instead of four or five times. Check out the powerpoint below to see how it all works!
Great way to convert your regular Google Slides or Powerpoints to be interactive. Add slides in between to check for understanding and get your students to do more than just take notes. Once they are done with the PearDeck, they can turn it in, giving you a copy of their answers to their embedded questions. Makes it easy on you, fun for the students and also gives you the opportunity to see if they are understanding what they are reading/writing.
