This tutorial is designed to help you understand some of the more advanced tips and tricks with Google classroom. you’ll learn how to differentiate work to students,how to assign questions and use them as forum,how to use topics to organize your information and how to reuse old posts.
Let’s talk about differentiating work. When you create an assignment,you’ll have a few options. One of the options says all students. You can select that,I only have one student in this class,but if I have a few different students and only want it to go to a couple of them,I could deselect the student that I didn’t want to receive the work.
If I have some additional practice that certain students need to complete,I could select only their names and assign the work to them. If you have multiple classes that are the same,you can go down to where it says for,you can select the same classes that you would like to assign this work to.
I can select those classes. When I create the assignment tables,it will not only be created in this classroom,it will also be created in my other classrooms. I can title this construction. You can assign it here or do a couple other things with its drop-down. You’ll notice that the sign is still there,I can schedule it. If I click on that,it allows me to schedule when this assignment is posted.
If I want to schedule an assignment to be posted the morning the next day,I can do that,it will be posted in the morning. But I don’t have to worry about making sure the sub hands out,it’ll automatically schedule the post. If you are not ready,you can save it as a draft.
That will put it up at the top of your stream so that you can post it at a later date. The next thing is how to use question and how to set them up.
You’re going to go up to question section and create a question,you can click on it. I’m going to ask my question. I can add some instructions,I can add a due date. I can select what type it is. I can do a multiple choice question. If I want to get some quick feedback for this,I’m going to do short answer,this is where you can create a forum.
If I turn this off,student can only answer their own questions and can not interact with other students. If I turn it on,students can submit their answers and add comments to their peers work. If you would like them to be able to go back and change their answers,you can turn this on.
You can do it so students can see other students work,you can set this so they can edit their answers. Once they see all of the other answers,they might go back and change it so that you don’t get an authentic demonstration of their understanding. You should think about that before you turn this slider on. I’m going to click ask,we’ll switch to the student side.
You can see what this looks like. If I go back to my screen,you’ll see these questions. I can plate my answer and submit it,I can see classmates answers. Unfortunately,I’m the only one in here. You’ll notice this reply button. If I want to reply and add a comment,I can do that and post it,students can reply to that.
My student has answered all my students. I can open it up and see their answers,I can check their replies to see what the conversation is.
Another helpful component in Google classroom is topic option. There are no topic. If I want to add a topic,I can create the topic,I can click Add. If I go to create an assignment.I can create an assignment. Under the topic,I can click writing,I’ll assign that. They need to figure out what all their writing assignments are.
On this left side,you can see the complex writing sign. If they click on that,it filters out all the other assignments. If you create a topic later,you can go back to an assignment and click edit,you can add the topic.
When the student is looking for all of the writing assignments,they can clean those facilities. Topics can help students navigate much more quickly. If you have a lot of topics posted on your screen,you can filter a few different topics,I’ll filter them out of the content and make it faster for students to finalize.
The last thing to look at is how to reuse code. I’m going to click the plus sign again,I am going to click reuse code. If I have multiple classes,I can select the class that I want to reuse a post for. It will show me everything that I’ve posted.
If I want to repost the verb lesson,I can click on it. It refreshes the information on the previous design,I can post it again. This can save you a lot of time especially when you teach similar subjects or similar courses in different trimesters or semesters. You can take assignments and announcements from previous classes,you can reuse them so you don’t have to recreate everything.
