2.   Refining Your Google Classroom Posts to Easily See Who May Need Support

  • Classwork >> Create -- (1) Assignment, (2) Quiz Assignment, (3) Quiz:  These 3 Google Classroom Classwork posts when used with a "Due Date" are an easy way to see student's work and know who is able to participate in Distance Learning.  The following Classwork events each have a due date feature: 
    • Which allows students to:

    • And allows teachers to:
      • See a quick tally of who has participated and who has not for easy access to a list of students who may need some support.
      • Review assignments that students have "Turned In" and  
      • Easy access to individual private feedback to each student.
  • Classwork >> Create -- (1) Materials, (2) Assignments without Due Dates: These Google Classroom Classwork posts - "Materials" & skipping the due dates on an assignment, will NOT:
