Transcripts

1. Introduction: Welcome to the course on google classroom. My name is Shannon, and I'll be taking you through how to use Google Classroom to best meet the needs of your students. First, we'll talk about how to get started with classroom, including a tour of the interface to help you feel more comfortable. Then we'll talk about how to create a classroom and add your students and customize it to meet your needs. Then we'll add content like quizzes or assignments for your students to complete online. Next, we'll discuss using different tools of Google classroom, including the to-do list, the calendar, and the Google Drive that it creates for your classroom. Finally, we'll be discussing grading and we'll go through the gradebook that calculates your students grades for you, as well as grading assignments online. 2. What is Classroom?: Google classroom is a virtual classroom tool that allows teachers to post announcements, assignments, and grades all in one place for their students. Additionally, it allows them to receive and grade student work all in Google Classroom. Teachers can collaborate with TAs or Paris or other members of a classroom on the virtual classroom and create assignments on their own. It also one thing to note is that a G Suite for Education is required if you're using Google Classroom for a class in an actual school. Google Classroom is similar to Moodle or Blackboard. So if you've used one of those, it might be a little familiar. 3. Opening Classroom: In this video, we'll be discussing how to get to your Google Classroom. So first you wanna make sure you have a web browser open. And then if you're on the Google homepage, you can click these nine squares and the top right corner where it says Google apps. And if you scroll all the way to the bottom, you'll see a little blackboard and where it says classroom. So you can either click on that or you can type into your search bar classroom dot google.com, and then hit enter. And it takes you to your classroom dashboard where you can see all the different classrooms you've created. So then to get into a specific one, you just left-click it once. And it takes you to your classroom. 4. Touring the Interface: In this video, we'll be touring the interface of Google classroom to help you feel more comfortable using it. So when you open your classroom from your Dashboard, the first page you open to is your stream, what you can see up here. So it shows your name, your class code, and the meat link if you have one, as well as the theme. And you can customize that further and I'll show you in a different video. Then here you can see any assignments or posts that you've posted in your stream. And it'll be, they will be in the order that you've posted them. On the left, you can see anything upcoming. So you can see that there are a couple of things due tomorrow for your students, and then one thing due Monday. If you want to view all, you can click that and it will bring you to your to-do list. Moving on to the classwork tab, we can click here. We can see any classwork that you've assigned your students. You or your co-teachers have assigned your students, and they're organized by topics. So you can see the topics on the left over here or these headings here. If you'd like to just view a specific topic, you can click either on it here or on it on the left bar. And it'll give you a more expanded version of any assignments you've created within this topic. So moving back to all topics, you can see that there are a few buttons up here for you to use. This is the meat button. It allows you to add a, create a meat link for your students if you'd like to meet with them year Google classroom. You can also access your Google calendar and the class Drive folder that Google Classroom creates for each class that you create. Moving on to the People tab of your classroom, you can see any teachers that you have, as well as a button to add teachers. You can see your students and whether or not they've been invited as Carlos has, or if they've accepted that notification as Allen and Ethan have. Again, you can also add your students here. And I do have several different options for customizing what you're doing with them. Then moving on to the grade section, you can see it opens automatically to a grade book where the columns are the assignments that you've created and the rows are your students. It shows their grades as well as their overall grade class averages on specific assignments. You can expand on these in different ways and we'll talk about that in the grade book section. So now looking in the top right, we can see this little COG wheel and that is our settings for your classroom. So you can click on that. And that will appear in any of these different tabs. So you can see classwork stream and people is also there. So we can click on settings where you can customize different portions of this to help meet the needs of your students. So here it shows what you created when you created your Google Classroom, which is the name, the section, the room number, and the subject. You can also hear out of class description if you'd like. Then there are some general settings including your class code and different things you can do with that. Some settings about your stream and some settings about your google meet. Then you can also see this is where you calculate or how you want your greeting. This is where you show how you want your grades to be calculated. Sorry. And you can see here it's weighted by category. And I'm allowing my students to see the overall grade will go more into that in a separate video. So if we scroll to the top and X out, there are a couple more things that I want to show you. So in this top left corner we see the three bars. If you click on that, you can switch between your classes up here, or you can click on your to-do list and view that, or you can go to your Google Calendar. You also see another Settings button. So it's important to note that these settings are different than the settings we just looked at. So these settings, if we click on that, are more related to notifications and your G Suite profile. So we'll go more into how to customize the settings in a different video. But that was a quick little tour of what your google classroom will look like. 5. Accessing Help: Now we're going to look into accessing help in Google Classroom if you're having difficulty with something. So on the bottom left of every screen is this question mark. So you want to click on that. And if you're having an issue, I would recommend starting at the Help Center, which is right here, that will open a new tab in your web browser. And you can either describe your issue in this search bar here, or you can use this to explore classroom or look at your other options and see if your issue fits into one of those. So say you're having trouble having students join your class. You can click create, join an organizer classes, and you'll see a multitude of options for how to help your students join a class. Now going back, if we click on this again. So you can also in this Help button, you can see what's new. So you can click on this and see what is new and Google Classroom. So you can see an April 20th, they updated it and have new features including adding Google meat. And you can also organize by month or by the date that the update was created. Going back to this Help button again, we can report an issue or Request a Feature. So say you're having an issue, you can immediately opens with including a screenshot. It'll it, you can see that it's loading and it will include a snapshot of your screen where you can also describe your issue and then send this to Google Classroom. So I'm not going to send one right now. And then going back to the last one that we haven't discussed is the help community. So this is a public community where people can ask questions and then other people can answer them. This isn't necessarily Google employees or Google experts. Anyone using the internet can access this and suggest help. So that is an option if you'd like, but I would recommend using help center first. 6. Creating a Class: Now we're going to look into creating a new Google Classroom. So you want to start on your dashboard that we've discussed how to get to you. And on the top right you can see this arrow. So this is create or join a class. So you wanna click that. And you want to create a class. So you will have to name your class. So I'll name this Mrs. Ss, fourth-grade. And then you can also list the section. If you have several sections of this, say you're teaching Biology and you have an honors and irregular section. You can list the subject. So I could list biology again if I'm teaching biology. And then if you want to list the room number, incase students forget you can list that here. And then you will click the Create button in the right-hand corner. So the only portion of this that is required is the name. So you can see here that it says it's required. I don't have to enter this section subject or room if I would not like. So you can click Create here. And then it will open to your stream where you can customize your classroom from there, which we will discuss in later videos. 7. Formatting your Classroom: There are also plenty of ways that you can customize your Google Classroom. So looking here, Google Classroom automatically gives you this image at the top of your screen. At the top of your Google Classroom, I should say. You can change this by clicking Select theme. And it gives you several options. So these are all the general options. There are options relating to English and history if you're teaching in English or History class. Math and Science options, plenty of arts options. And some sports. Maybe you're teaching physical education or you're creating this classroom for your team. And then other options. So if you want a classroom with a different theme, so clicking here, let's just say I want to select this economics picture. Then I would click on that and click selected class theme. So as you can see, this changes both the image and the color scheme of the Google Classroom. So now this is green instead of blue, and this will also change the color scheme throughout the different tabs. So you can see this button is now green instead of blue. So going back, another way you can customize your Google Classroom is by uploading your own photo. So to do that, you want to click upload photo and this bottom right corner. And then you can select a photo from your computer. So I'll be selecting downloads. And then you click on the file that you would like. And then open. And you can select what portion of this you would like. So it's going to keep the ratio so that it looks similar to the other headers and Google Classroom. So let's say I want it to be this ABC. Then you would select the image that you would like. And click selected class theme or select class theme. And now this changes it to a more black or navy color scheme. So again, this button changes and it customizes it based on the picture that you uploaded. 8. Customizing Class Settings: We're going to look at how you can customize your Google Classroom further by changing the settings of your class. So first you want to get your settings by clicking this little wheel, COG wheel in the top right corner of your screen. So you can click that and a pop-up will appear. You can change the details of the class that you created when you created the class. So you can change the name, section, the room, the subject. And here you can also add a description of the class if you would like. Moving on down to general settings. You see a class code here that is what students use when they are joining one class or one way students can join the class. So you can choose to display this on your screen, copy it if you want to send it in an email or something, you can choose to reset it or disable it so that students cannot join by the code. Another feature in the general settings is your stream. So you can hear, choose whether students can post and comment on the stream. You can make it so that your students can only comment or you can have only teachers have the ability to post and comment. And again, this would be any teacher of the classroom. So say you and your TA have access to this classroom, then you would both be able to comment or post and comment. And then classwork on the stream. So here it automatically sets so that it shows condensed notifications where it just shows the title of What is the classwork on the stream. You can have it show attachments and the details on your stream, or you can have it hide notifications overall. You can also choose to show deleted items. If you've deleted items, but you still want your students to be able to see. And you would do that by clicking this little button right here. And if you notice this save illuminated, so you want to make sure that you save your changes. But we'll keep going. You can choose to set up a meat link if you want to have Google meets with your class. And you can choose whether this is visible to your students or not. And then moving onto grading. So you can choose whether Google Classroom calculates an overall grade for your students, right? The automatic setting is that it doesn't. Also, if you would like to calculate an overall grade, you can choose whether it's based on the total number of points or if it's weighted by category. So let's click total points, then we can add a category. So let's say math. We want math to be our first category, and I want math to be worth 50 points. And then I can click away and it will add math. I can add another and as many as you'd like. So I'm gonna delete that for now, another. And then if you click weighted by category and you again click the Save button at a grade category. And let's say we're going to choose math again. And as you can see over here, it shows that the percentage, it doesn't add up to a 100. So that is showing that it's invalid. So let's just say that we want math to account for a 100% of this class's grade. And you can see that there is 0% remaining. So if we want it to count for ten, it shows that you're missing 90% of the grade. But we'll just keep as that for now. And then you can also choose whether you want Google classroom to show students their overall grade or if you just want them, if you just want Google classroom to show you the grade. And then from here you want to make sure you click save so that all the changes you made to your settings will be saved. 9. Personalizing Notification Settings: We're going to look at how to customize the notifications that you receive from your classroom. So in order to do that, you want to click these three bars and the top left corner of your screen and click the Settings button down here. Remember these settings are different than the settings discussed in a different video using this COG bill over here. So click the settings. Here. You can change elements of your Google Suite profile so you can change your picture or other settings by clicking Manage. If you want to specifically change the notifications for your Google Classroom, you can go to this section. So right now, the default setting is that you don't receive any email notifications regarding your class. But if I would like to, I can click this and make it blue. And you can see that a further list of settings appears. So you can change if you would like a notification based on any one commenting on a post in your classroom stream. Any comments that specifically mentioned you or any private comments that a student or other teacher may make on work assigned. You can also customize based on the classes that you teach. So you can customize, you can receive notifications for any late submissions or if a student submits work. If you are invited to co-teach a class with another teacher, or if you had a scheduled post that published or if it failed. So it'll notify you whether or not it posted. Then you can choose whether you would like to turn on or off notifications for a specific class. So say I taught Biology last semester and I would not like to receive notifications for this class anymore. I'll just click this button and it will change it so that I don't receive any notifications. Again, if this button is gray, I won't receive any. But if it's blue, that means these notifications are on. Additionally in these settings, you don't have to press any Save button because Google automatically saves the settings for you. 10. Adding Your Students and Collaborators: Let's take a look at how we can add students and collaborators to our Google Classroom. So if students are already on their Google Classroom page, they can type in your class code. You can see the class code here. If you'd like to make it bigger for your class to see, you can click this box that says Display. And that will take up a good portion of your screen if you'd like to make it even bigger because students in the back are having difficulty seeing. You can make it the full screen. To exit. You can click exit full screen once you're done and students have joins the Google Classroom. Or you can add students and collaborators individually. So you can do that by clicking on the People page up here. So you can add teachers by clicking, invite teachers, and you see you have the option to type their name or email. So if they're in your network, you'll probably see there, you can type in their name and that will probably come up. Or if you just have their email, you can invite that way to. Additionally, you can invite students by clicking this invite students button. So again, you can type in their name if they're in your network, for example, if they have an email through your schools G Suite, then you can probably type in their name and find them that way. Or if you have a list of emails, you can invite students that way. So if I want to invite Ethan cane, so I can click here and invite him. You can see that his name pops up. And you can add more than one student at a time to invite them. So right now I already have someone that I would like to. So I'm going to click cancel. But if you'd like to invite that Student, you click invite. And you can see here that Ethan Cain is just invited right now, once he joins the classroom and accept your invitation, his name will change from black or gray to black. And it will no longer say invite it. 11. Working with Stream Posts: Let's now take a look at how we can add stream posts or customize our stream on our Google Classroom. So first you want to make sure that you're in this stream tab of your Google Classroom. And then if you'd like to add a post, you can click here, share something with your class. So you can select which classes you'd like to share this with. So it will automatically select the class that you're currently in. You'd also like to select a different class. You can select that as well. And you can see it will say two classes or however money you'd like to share with. For now, I just would like one. You can also select which students you would like to receive this stream post. So let's say I just want Ethan to receive it. I can unselect LN and then Ellen will not receive it. And Ethan, well, but for now, I would like all my students to see it. The only required portion of this is the text. So you want to click where it says share with her class and then type what you would like to share. So reminder, there is no school on Monday. And from here you can also add attachments. So you could click add right here. You can add something from your Google Drive. So it automatically brings you up to your recents. You can upload something that will then be put in your Google Drive. You can add something from your drive here, your shared drives. Maybe if you share one with your team, or if you've already started something in your Google Drive, then you can select it from here. You wanna make sure you click add, so it adds it to your post. For now, we'll just select cancel. Then you can also add a link. You would just want to paste the URL from your link in here and then click add link to add it to your post. Additionally, you can add a file. So you can choose to select files from your device here. And that will open up your, all your files. And then you can click one and then click open. Or you can drag a file onto the screen and drop it here. Again, make sure you hit upload so that it actually adds it to your post. The last option for adding is YouTube videos. So you can either search here. So you can search YouTube from this screen. Or if you've already done your search and have a URL, you can just paste it here and it will appear here. And then make sure again to click Add so that it adds it to your post. For now I'm just going to post this. So I will click post. So it will show kinda like a social media post. It says who posted it and then the texts that I included. If you or your teachers, your co-teachers, or you would like, or your students can comment here and then click Comment. Additionally, let's say you don't want this to be at the top of the screen. You want students to remember, let's say about Friday spelling quiz first, you can click these three dots on the right hand side and click Move to top. So this will automatically move whatever post you just clicked to the top. Additionally, you can edit posts from here. So if you click at it, it will appear with a very similar screen to the one you just had. And you can choose to add. You can select students again as well. And make sure if you make any changes you click Save. For now, I haven't made me, so I'll click cancel. From here. You can also delete. It will double-check with you, so will automatically delete. It will say this will also delete comments. I don't want it to be deleted, so I'll click Cancel. Or you can copy the link. Let's say if you wanted to share this post via an email or something different. 12. Creating Topics: We're going to look at adding topics into our classwork to help us organize that tab of our Google Classroom. So first you want to make sure that you're in the classwork tab. So click classwork appear. And you can see that in this classroom there are already several topics. So math is a topic, language arts, social studies, et cetera. And you can also see your topics listed on the left over here. So if you'd like to create a new topic, you click this Create button at the top left. And you can go all the way to the bottom where it says topic. So the only thing you need to add is the name. So let's add a topic for small group reading. And then you click add. This now adds a new section to your classwork, as well as a new button over here. If you'd like to look further at a subject or a topic, let's say you want to look at the language arts work that your students have been doing. You can see the different assignments you've posted here. And it gives you a more in-depth look than it did on the general classwork page. So you can see down here. So I've created this assignment and 0 have turned it in. One has been assigned and one has been graded. It says 0 have been turned in because the turned in section is for students who have turned in the assignment, but it hasn't yet been graded by you. So someone did turn it in, but you've already created it. So you can see that here. Going back to our classwork, we can either click classwork or all topics. And if you want to look further into your options for these topics, you can click these three dots on the right. So you can rename your topic deleted, copy link or move up and down on your screen. So this isn't as important, so I want math to be above it, so I'll move it down. And then map will become above small-group reading. 13. Adding Classwork Material: Let's go ahead and take a look at how we can add material to our classwork page. So first you want to be under your classwork tab. So click up here on classwork. Then in order to create new material, you click Create and then material. So the only required portion is the title. So for this, I'm just going to say Thursday as homework. And then you can add a description which is optional. So Let's say I want my students to read chapter four, tough, everlasting. Similar to the stream posts, you can also add attachments. So you can add something from your Google Drive, a link, a file or a YouTube video. Or it gives you the option to create another file. So you can create a Google doc, a Google slide sheet drying or form to help elaborate further on the material that you're posting. Additionally, you can choose which classes that you share this material to. It will automatically select the class that you are already in. And if you'd like to add it to a different class, you can select that class as well. Again, you can change whether you want all your students to have this material posted, or if you'd just like one or two, as many as you'd like. And then you can organize this by putting it under a certain topic. So this would be under the language arts subjects. So I want this homework to be under Language Arts. Then you can see it's saving and it saved so that all your settings are saved. And you can post that where it will then appear under Language Arts. So you can see Thursday's homework, but it doesn't, it just gives the title. So if you want to look further, you can click the language arts and then you can see what the homework actually is. 14. Creating a Basic Assignment: Let's take a look at how we can create a basic classroom assignment for our students and our Google Classroom. So first you want to start in the classwork tab. So you can click classwork right here, and then you can click Create in the top left corner. So we're gonna click assignment from here because we're creating an assignment. One thing that's required is a title. So this assignment I'll be creating is a realistic short fiction assignment. And you can add instructions if you'd like. I will be adding instructions here. Please write a three air craft realists. So this will give my students more of an idea of what this assignment is all about and what I would like them to be doing. If you'd like, you can add different files. So you can add from your Google Drive, you can add a link, a file or a YouTube video. Or you can create different files as well. So you can create a Google doc who will slide sheet drawing or a form if that best suits your assignment. And then from here you can select which class you would like this to be assigned to as well, and automatically selects the class you're in. You can select more than one class if you'd like. You can change whether you'd like all your students to be assigned to this or you would just like a few depending on what you would like. You can change the due date. So I would like this to be do let's say Monday. And then if you'd like to change the time, you can the default is 11:59 PM. So at the end of the day, if let's say I want this to be by the time we get to language arts. So I can change this to be one o'clock PM. And then you can also add it under a topic. So this is language arts, so I want it under the language arts section of my classwork folder. We also see some grading features and rubrics will be discussing these further in different videos. For now we're just looking at creating a basic assignment. So now you can click assign. And before we click that, I just want to note that you can see that it's saved, so you don't have to do any saving. It automatically saves it for you. So let's say I exit out of this. You can see that it's a draft in my language arts. So you can click on it again and edit it and assign it so it doesn't go away if you don't save it. So so it's notifying me that it's not selected and an overall grade. But I would still like to continue. Yes. Right. And then there it as it shows up here. And we can click and view it to see it further. So we can either see the instructions or the student work. One thing that I want to know is that once you create an assignment with a due date, that due date will appear on your Google calendar. So if we click these three bars at the top left, and click our calendar. So we assign that to be due on Monday. So we can see Monday on our calendar that we can see the title of the assignment as well as the time that it is due. And we can click on it and it will bring us to this expanded screen showing us more about the assignment that we just created. 15. Grading Features: Let's take a look into the grading features available to us when we're using Google Classroom. So first we want to be under the classwork tab. So let's click on that. And let's say we're creating a basic assignment. So I'll click Create an assignment. The grading features available are on the right. So we can see that there's grading category and number of points. So grading categories is what you set up when you're creating, how your overall grade will be calculated. So for an elementary classroom, it might be based on subjects, and in a secondary classroom it might be based on tests, quizzes, homework, or participation. So here we can see it's set up with subjects. You can choose the number of points that this assignment will be worth, or you can have it be ungraded if you click this little arrow right here. Additionally, you can add a rubric to this, so you can have one that is already in a different assignment on your Google classroom. You can upload one or you can make one right there. And you can turn on this originality reports. So that makes sure that your students are not plagiarizing the assignments that they're submitting and that will automatically check it with Google. So first, let's look at an assignment I've already created. So we're gonna be looking at the realistic short fiction assignment. So we're going to edit this by clicking these three dots on the right. Click at it. So this would be a language arts assess or language arts assignment. So I would be putting that in the language arts grading category. And let's say it's not that, it's not that important. So I want it to be worth 20 points. This classroom right now is set up to have points based on a weighted average. So the number of points calculated is a little different. Additionally, you can add a rubric, as I discussed earlier, so I'll click Add rubric so I can reuse one important one from Google sheets or create one. I'm going to reuse a rubric that I've already used. So I can see that I had another realistic short story assignment here. And I will click on that and select it. So that rubric will now be added to my assignment. And I can see that that's a 100. So I'll go ahead and change this. Again. You can also turn on originality reports to check if your students are plagiarizing. And you just wanna make sure you hit save so that it updates the changes that you've made to this assignment. 16. Customizing your Assignment: Let's take a look at how we can further customize our assignments to best meet the needs of our students. So in this video, I'm going to be editing an assignment that I already created. So in order to do that, I will click these three dots on the right and click edit. So from here I can add it to a specific topics. So if you noticed it was at the top of the screen and not under any of the topics for my classroom. So if I want to organize it further, I can click that I would like it to be under Language Arts because it's short story. Additionally, I can add an attachment, so I can add something from my Google drive. I can add a link that I can paste. I can add a file to upload. And as you can see here, you can do it that way. Or I can add a YouTube video. Or you can also have the option to create Google Suite file. So it can be a Google doc, a Slides, Sheets, drawings, or a form. In this assignment, I'm going to be adding a Google Doc for my Google Drive that I've already created. So I would like to add this. So I'm going to click on that and then I'll click add. And then you can see that it adds it to your assignment. You also see that when it's a Google Suite file, you have the option to allow your students to either view the file or edit it. Now because this is a document describing what I would like my students to do in this assignment. I don't want them to have the ability to edit it. Now you want to make sure that before you post this or before you exit out, you save all your changes. So I'll click Save. And now we can see that that realistic short story is now under Language Arts instead of at the top of our screen. And it also has the attachment, if you click on it here. 17. Creating an Assignment Quiz: Let's go ahead and take a look at how we can create a quiz assignment and our Google Classroom. You wanna make sure that you're in the classwork tab of your Google Classroom. And then you can go click the create button in the top left. From there you want to click quiz assignment. And then it will, it will bring up this screen so you can title it. This will be a Tuck Everlasting quiz for my students. And you can add instructions if you'd like. So for this, I will say You may use your books. And as you can see that it already creates a blank quiz through Google forms. So you can click on that and customize it if you'd like. Or you can add something else. So you can add a Google file from your Google Drive, a link file from your computer, or a YouTube video. So I'm gonna go ahead and click Google Drive and add a quiz that I've already created. So I can see I have my Tuck Everlasting quiz here. So I will click that and click Add. And it will still keep the blank quiz. So I'm gonna go ahead and delete that because I'm not going to be using it. And then at the bottom you'll see grade importing. So this button means that your students results from your quiz will automatically be put into your grade book. So whatever their answers are on the Google Forms, you'll be able to say whether an answer is correct or not, and it will automatically import it. So again, we can customize it just like other assignments. And I want to, in this class with all my students, I want this to be in the language arts grade category. I want it to be do I let say next Friday? And I'm going to let it be the default time of 11:59 PM. And I would like this to go under the topic of language arts, because it's in language arts, I can add a rubric if I'd like, but I don't need to for this quiz. And again, you can turn on originality reports to make sure that your students are not plagiarizing. From here I can click assign. And now my students will be able to see it under Language Arts. And if they click on it, and you can see that the quiz, and they can click that and take the quiz from there. 18. Adding an Assignment Question: In this video, we're going to be looking at creating a question in your Google Classroom. So first you wanna make sure that you are in your classwork tab of your classroom. And then click that big Create button in the top left corner. Scroll down to where it says Question next to the question mark, and go ahead and click on that. So the required content is the question. So I will be asking my students what has been your favorite book that we read this year? So I can either allow them to answer in a short answer or multiple choice. So if I selected multiple choice, I can also enter the options and you can add options as you go. I'd like my students to enter a short answer. You can also add any instructions if that isn't necessary. Again, you can add any files from your Google Drive, a link, a file from your computer, or YouTube video. You can also create a Google doc, a slide, a sheet, drawing or a form from here as well. And then moving on to this right toolbar, you can decide which class you'd like it in. I'd like it in the class. Mys M is fifth grade Smarties. Whether you'd like all students or just some students to have access to it and whether you'd like it to be graded. So for this one, I would like this to be ungraded because I'm not grading them on which book is their favorite. And then a due date. So I'm going to set a due date just because I want students to answer this in a timely fashion so that I can take the feedback. And then I'm going to let it be the default time, which is 11:59 PM. And then I'm going to put it under Language Arts because its language arts topic. So it also gives you the options of letting students reply to each other. So if you want students to be able to talk to each other, I think I'd like them to because that maybe they can discuss why it's their favorite. You can also allow them to edit their answer. I'm not going to select this box because I don't want my students changing their answer based on what their classmates are saying. And then you can go ahead and click Ask, and that will create the question. And it says there's no grade category selected, but I don't mind because I want it to be ungraded. So as you can see, it shows up here under Language Arts in this question. One thing that I want to note is what it looks like in the student view. So for right now, I'm going to be switching to a student's view of your Google Classroom. So over here I'm in Ellen's account, as you can see here. And you can see that this question has just been added. What has been your favorite book that we have read this year? So I'm going to click Go ahead and view question. And then you can see a couple different options for where they should, where they can reply. So they can add a comment to the class. So it adds a comment to the assignment that you've created. They can add a private comment so it sends it to you. Or they can type their answer. So you wanna make sure that your students are typing their answer here, because this will show that they've completed it. Otherwise, if they answered through a public or private comment in your grade book, it will show that they have not completed the assignment. So to minimize any confusion, they can go ahead and type their answer in here. Maybe Ellen's favorite book was The Giver. And then they can click turn in. And then from there if they'd like, they can see their classmates answers after they have answered their question. 19. Reusing a Post: Now we're going to be taking a look at how to reason assignment that you've already created in your Google Classroom. So in order to do this, you wanna make sure you're in the classwork tab of your Google Classroom right up here. And then click that big Create button in the top left. So from here you want to scroll where it says reuse post, which is at the bottom of this list and right above topic. Then it will show all the posts that you've made. And you can see that these are posts from your clock through him that you're currently in. So you can scroll and you can see based on the post date, who posted it in the title. So for this one, I would like to recreate the realistic short story assignment. And you can choose whether or not to create new copies of all attachments. So I'm going to because I don't want to confuse myself if I make any edits to this one and change the document that I used for the previous assignment. So then go ahead and make sure you click reuse. And then I will open this page which allows you to edit anything you'd like to. So if I want to add further instructions, I can add them here. And then it, you can see that it created a copy of this realistic short story instructions that were on the last post. And I can change the settings, whether the students can view the file, can edit the file, or if I want to make a copy for each student individually. I also see that the rubric over here from the realistic short story original post has transferred over. So I can take a look at that if I want. And I can edit anything that I would be able to edit and a normal post anyways. So I would like to keep everything the same except the due date. So that is one thing you want to make sure that you change because that doesn't transfer over. So for this one, I would like it to be do let's say next Friday. And I'm gonna keep the time as the generic time, which is 11:59 PM at the end of the day. And then from there, I will go ahead and click assign. And you can see that that is added under Language Arts, which is the topic that I wanted it under. And you can see that it's now do January fifth at 11:59 PM for June fifth. 20. Using your Dashboard: We're going to be taking a look at how to use your Google Classroom dashboard to your advantage. So first let's get to our Dashboard. Remember you can either type in classroom dot google.com or you can use this, these nine squares, scroll to the bottom and click on classroom. So this is your dashboard. It shows you all the classes that you are currently teaching. And you can see that it has the name of the classes up here. It has the number of students as well as anything due for that class. And there are several features of this that we can use. So you can move classes around if you want them in a different order. So say I want this over here. I can pick it up and drag it. Or I can collect these three buttons. Click move. And I can move it to the end. And then you can see that that will move it to the end. Additionally, some other options and these three buttons, it allows you to edit this class. So if we click at it, we can edit what you set up when you originally created this class. So you can edit the name, the section, the subject in the room. And remember to hit save before you finish. For now, I'm not going to edit that. You can also copy this class or you can archive it if it's no longer a Class C or teaching. Looking at some other buttons in the dashboard, you this arrow here, it will immediately take you to the grade book for that class. So if we click that, it instantly takes you to the grade, Grade Book for that class. And you can see the different grades. Now to get back to the dashboard, if you'd like to, you can click these three lines at the top left of your screen. In any of these tabs, we can see that stays here. So if we click that and you click Classes, it'll bring right, bring you right back to where you were. You can also click this little folder and that will bring you to the Google Drive folder created for this class. So if I click that, you can see it opens a new tab and brings up anything that you've created in this classroom. So you can see that there are several blank quizzes. You can see an assignment and a couple assignments that I've created as well. Also, it creates folders for anything your students need to submit. So if we look at Spring Break writing assignment, we can see the two submissions for my students for the writing assignment from there. Alright, now let's go back to the dashboard. You can also click on your students. And that will bring you to the people page. Or let's go back to that dashboard. Or you can just click on this and it will bring you right to your classroom stream. 21. Managing and Emailing Students: In this video, we're going to be taking a look at how we can manage our students and email them through your Google Classroom. First of all, you wanna make sure that you're in the People page. So we can go ahead and click on that. And you can see that this page lists the instructor or the teachers as well as all your students. You didn't see that Carlos here is, his name is a little lighter in the gray because he has just invited and has not accepted the invitation to the classroom. But you can see that Ellen and Ethan are both in the classroom and have either accepted the invitation or joined on their own. And if we click this box, we have some actions that we can use. So we can also see that Carlos does is available for these actions, but he doesn't have the three dots over here. So some actions we can take, we can email our students, and if we click that, it opens a new tab with an email where it blind copies the students. You can see their emails here. And blind copying just means that the students will not be able to see who else has received the email or each other's emails. So from here, you can create your email just as you would in your regular Gmail and send it. Additionally, some other actions you can take as you can remove students from here, or you can mute them. And unmute would probably be a good idea. Maybe if a student has left your class, but you still want them to access that information. Then moving over here to the three dots next to the name, next to the student's name. You can email your students from there if that is easier for you. Additionally, you can store your sort, your students by lastname or firstName. And again, if you'd like to add any students or instructors, you can click this button to add students and type their name if they're in your network. And that will probably appear or if you know their email, you can invite them that way. Additionally, you can invite any co-instructors, maybe if you have a TA or a para, you can invite them that way as well. And they can do everything you can accept FOR deletes the class. 22. Utilizing the To Do List: In this video, we're going to be looking at utilizing your to-do list in Google Classroom. So to get to your to-do lists, you wanna click the three bars in the top left corner of your screen and then select todo, which is right underneath teaching. So you can see everything that needs to be done, but it can be a little overwhelming. So let's look at how we can break that down. So right now, it's showing all of your classes to do lists. So if you'd like to just show one class, you can just click one of class. So if we look at Mrs. Ss, There's no work to review. And it says lucky you. And then if we go to biology, we can see that there's one thing that you need to do or work on. Also, I want you to notice that the bar on the left side is a different color. And that is based on the theme of your classroom. So if we go back to Mrs. m's, you can see that that bars a little lighter blue. Also, when looking at this, you can list your to do list based on the assignments you've created. So you can see that this assignment is titled, Why did the Revolutionary War take place? And then it's in Mrs. EMS fifth grade Smarties class. And then over here we can see a few different options. So this is showing, it gives you a little bit more information about the students who have completed the assignment as well as the ones that you've already graded. So here if we looked at, look at turned in, it shows that one student has turned this assignment in. It stays in the turned in location until you have graded it. And then over here we can see assigned. So this is, this shows you that how many students have been assigned the task but have yet to complete it. So right now it says 0 assigned because every student that has been assigned to this task has completed it. And then over here looking at graded, it shows that you've graded one student's assignment. So once you've created it, it moves from turned in to graded. And additionally, it gives us some options on what these three dots. So if we click that, we can click mark as reviewed. So what that means is that you don't need to keep this on your to-do list anymore and it'll move it to this reviewed tab over here. So for this one, it still has something that I want to do because I need to create this student's assignment. But if we look down here, we can see that in this question, 0 students have turned it in and 0 had been assigned. So that mean, and you've created two of them. So that means that you've graded every assignment that's been assigned and turned in. So I can click this and move it to mark as reviewed. And then if we click over here into the Review tab, it shows everything that you've reviewed. And if you want to move it back to where it was because you decide that maybe I want to look at it again. You can click these three dots and mark it as not reviewed, and it'll move it back to the original spot. 23. Using Google Drive: Let's take a look at the Google Drive folder that Google Classroom creates for your class. So in order to get there, there are a couple of different ways. You can click on the classwork tab of your Google Classroom. And you can click class Drive folder. So Google automatically creates a folder in your drive for the Class that you've created. So you click on that. You can get there that way. Also, if you're on your Google page, you can click the nine squares in the top right and click on your drive. And from here you can see a folder called classroom. So that is where your Google Drive will store all of your classrooms. That way it's not taking up too much of your Google Drive. So then from there you just want to select the classroom that you'd like to work with. So in this case, I'd like to work with this one. And we can see it opens the exact same page, but it opened when you use your Google classroom to get there. So looking here we can see the assignments that you've created under files. So we can see the science quiz in a Google form. We can see the multiplication assignment and other assignments that we've created. And here I want you to take notice. So it also shows a blank quiz. So anytime that you create a quiz assignment, it automatically creates a blank quiz in your Google Drive. So if, if you decide that you don't want to actually create that quiz assignment, it's still leaves it here. So if you don't want that, you can just right-click and remove. And then looking up here. So Google Drive automatically creates a folder for your students submissions to your assignments. So if you want to look at what your students have submitted for your assignments, you can click on that. So I'm going to look at the spring break writing assignment and we can see the submissions for my students. So it automatically titles them based on their name and the name of the assignment. So you can see Ellen Wilson's spring break writing assignment right here. And if you click on that, it would open her writing assignment for you to view. Now going back to that classroom folder, it also shows the templates you created. So if we click here templates. So this is a template that you created for your multiplicate. This one is specifically for your multiplication quiz. And then it will create a new Google, Google doc for every student to complete it. So this is the blank one, but every student will complete their own. So if we look, let's go back and look at the students multiplication math quiz. So we can see that Ellen and Ethan also finish this assignment. And it doesn't have the template it has they're completed assignments. 24. Using the Gradebook: Let's take a look at the gradebook in your Google Classroom and how you can best use it. So to get there, you wanna click grades in the top-right tab. And then it'll bring you to your grade book. So you can see that the columns are the assignments that you've created, as well as their due date up here. And it shows you what category they're in in terms of grading. And then the rows are the students and their grades. So we can also see that it calculates an overall grade for your students. So you can see the class average as well as each student's grade. Additionally, if you'd like to look at the average grade for each assignment, you can see it in this gray row right here. So if you want to look at how your students performed on a specific assignment, you can just take a look at this average and the top. Also, let's take a look at some further features of this. So we can see some different colours in the grades. So we, there's some green, red, and black grades. So the green means either you haven't graded it, as you can see right here, there's no grade, but the assignment is out of ten. Over here you can see that this has been graded, but it's considered a draft. So it will be considered a draft and stay green until you return the grade to the student. So that means that now you and the student can see it once you've returned it. So there's a couple different ways you can do that. First you can click return from here and return it to that specific student. Or you can click these three dots up here and return all the grades for all your students so they receive them all at once. So we can click that. And it will show you who's, who will now be able to see it right now, it's just Ellen and we click return. And you'll notice that that grade is now changed to black color text. It also still denotes that this assignment was done late. So that is something that you might want to keep track of if it's a common theme. So we can see Ellen has done a few assignments late. And maybe that's something you would like to denote on a report card, a progress report. And the red is means they're missing and they haven't submitted the assignment. You can also see that when you hover over a grade, it shows the total number of points that could possibly receive. So if we take a look over here, you wanna make sure that your students aren't receiving an eight out of a 100. So we can click and it shows the L and received an eight out of ten on that. Some other options with grades, if we click these three dots again on a specific students grade on an assignment, we can click to view that submission so that it's easier if you want to be grading things from here. So if we click that, let's actually take a look at something more complicated. So let's look at her spring break writing assignment. So you submission. So it shows the grade that you've submitted. Additionally, you can change the total points from here. And it also shows the rubric you created when you made this assignment. So you can take a look at that in a new window if you'd like. And it'll show your whole rubric if you want to switch back and forth between your tabs, or you can expand upon it right here. So if you click the arrow, you'll be able to see this one is titled grammar and spelling. And you can take a look at how many points and what that, what those point to notions mean. And you can expand on this one as well. From here, you can also send private comments to your students. Maybe you want to tell them that they did a great job. So let's see, let's say, great, great job, Ellington. And then you can post that for your students to see. Now going back to your Gradebook, let's look at some other options that we have. If you want to look at more options for a specific assignment, you can click the three dots to the right of the assignment. You can edit the assignment from here. You can delete it, or like we discussed earlier, you can return all of the grades. You can also click the assignment to view it from here. If you'd like to just take a look at a further expanded version of the assignment so you can see how many students have turned it in and how many students have been assigned it. So we see that you haven't graded any of these. So the student who has turned it in, who its Ethan. So you can see that Ethan has turned it in, but you haven't graded it and Ellen has been assigned it, but has yet to complete it. You can also so this is under the student work tab, which is what instantly opens. You can also take a look at the instructions for this assignment, as well as the rubric. Now heading back to your grades, you can click missense fifth grade Smarties, and click your gradebook again. Some other options you have in this grade book are looking specifically at students. So if I want to take a look at Ethan's overall performance, maybe if you're having a conference with their families, you can click that. So it shows Ethan's overall grade, as well as the assignments, due dates, and their grades, and the category that the grades are in. So you can look at what he has turned in, but you've yet to grade. You can look at what you've returned with a grade or you can see if he's missing any assignments. So you can see that this one is missing. And if we go back, we have that overall view of Ethan's grades again. So this is great. Like I said, if you are maybe meeting with the family of the student, and you can click on this to take a look at the grade calculation as well. 25. Using the Rubric: Let's take a look at how we can use rubrics in your Google Classroom. So make sure that you're in your classwork tab of Google Classroom. And then from there we're first going to look at a rubric that I've already created just to give you an idea of what they look like. So we're gonna click on realistic short story. And you can see right here it shows you the rubric. So I'm going to click on that. And it'll open a full page of this rubric to give you a better view. So we can see the name of the criteria on right here. So this is the quality of the assignment. You didn't see the number of points is in italics on the right of each box. And then you can also see the title for this level as well as a description. So the first box shows that the student completed this assignment in an excellent manner. And they follow the prompts, instructions exactly, et cetera. You can view a less detailed version of this by clicking the up arrow and a more detailed view version by clicking the down arrow. Now let's go ahead and take a look at adding a rubric to an assignment. So I'm going to exit out of here. We're gonna take a look at the spring break writing assignment. And I'm going to edit this. So click these three dots and click at it. Now you can add a rubric to an assignment that you're creating right there. I just wanted to add one from one that I've already created. So down here on the bottom right you can see the rubric button. If you click that, it gives you several options. So you can create your own rubric. You can reuse a rubric or you can import one from sheets. So if you import one from Sheets, it takes some a rubric that you've already created in Google sheets and allows you to use it in this assignment. If you reuse a rubric, let's go ahead and click that. You can look at the rubrics you've created and it shows that you're in the class, the classroom that you're using right now. So if you click on one, you can either preview it to make sure that it's the one that you want or you can select it if you already know. You can change which class you're looking at by clicking that Down arrow and selecting a different class. For now, I'm going to create my own rubric. So if we click that rubric button again and then click Create Rubric. So first, you want to make sure that you're using scoring. If you don't want to use scoring, then any point values you've added will be deleted. So I'm going to cancel because I want to use point scoring. You can also choose how the points are, what the points are in order. So for this one, I want my points to be in ascending order. That's I would like to view my rubric. The first required component is the title of your criterion. So this is a writing assignment, so I'll make the first criterion, grammar and spelling. You can describe this criteria on even further, right here if you'd like to. And then the next portion of this that's required is the number of points. So for this one, I want the number of points to be ten. And you can see it changes the total number of points up here, as well as the total number of points in this criteria on right here. And then you can also add a level title. So if this is ten, that's a low-level. So I could maybe say needs work. And you can add a description. Maybe I could say that there were a multitude of grammar and spelling issues in this writing assignment. Just to give you a better idea while you're grading it. To add any criteria, you can either click this plus or ADA level, sorry, you can either click this plus button here or the one on the right. I'm going to go in ascending order, so I'll click the one on the right. And then I want this one to be worth 20 points. I don't have to add a level title or a description. So for the sake of time, I'm just going to be adding the points right now. Alright? So there are also some options within these boxes. So if you click the three dots at the bottom right, you can delete this level and it will delete that level for now, I would like to keep that. And then within the criterion, you can use this menu button, the three dots top-right again, and you can duplicate it. So I would like to duplicate this one now and create something similar. So now this criterion, I want it to be details within the assignment. So I can add a further description of that if I'd like to. Or I can change the number of points, I'm going to keep the number of points because I would like it to be out of a 100. And you can see that this criterion is out of 50. And this is also out of 50, and the whole assignment is now out of a 100 points. So some other options when working with your criterion are we click here, you can delete it. You can also change the order that it is. This ones at the top right now if I want to move it down, I can if I would like, there's no option to move it up because it's already at the top. You can also add criteria on by clicking this button down on the bottom left, click Add a criterion. And it brings up the same display as when you first added one. So for now, I'm going to keep the two that I have. So I will click that menu button and delete. And then once you are satisfied with the rubric you've created, you make sure you click save before adding it to your assignment, just to make sure that it's all set. 26. Grading Assignments: Let's take a look at how you can grade your students assignments through Google Classroom. So the first way to get to your students assignments is under the classwork tab. You can click on a specific assignment. So as you can see, I've already selected that realistic short story. And you can see how many students have turned it in and how many it has been assigned to, but you're still waiting for them to turn it in. You can also see here that there's no graded because I have yet to grade any of their assignments. So if you click on the turned in, it shows you any students that have turned it in. So you can see that one student has turned it in as well as if you've already entered any grades you can that you would be able to see them here. If you'd like to take a look at the instructions before you start grading, you can click on this tab. Otherwise you can go through student work. Now there are a couple of different ways to get there. So I'm going to show you those as well. So if we go back to this stream page, we can click on grades. So that'll bring you to the grade book and you can see it here. So again, I'm looking at the realistic short story. So I can either click, if I click here, it'll open the page that I was just showing you. If we go back to the grade book, you can also directly open a student's submission by clicking the three dots or the menu next to their ungraded assignment and click View submission. And in this view you can see what the student has submitted and it allows you to read it, as well as being able to see any grade you've submitted and the rubric. So there's no grade yet because you haven't graded it. If you'd like to take a look at the rubric in a bigger screen. You can click this button and it says Open rubric in a new window. And it'll show you your whole rubric if you'd like that version. Otherwise going back, you can expand. So this is one criterion in this rubric, I only had one criterion, so you can see it here in blue. If you want to select down, it'll give you an expanded version of your rubric. So you can see that excellent is worth a 100 points and it gives you the details for what qualifies as an excellent paper. So if you'd like to submit a grade, you can, or if you'd like to agree at the student's paper, you can either click this box. And this would be grading this by specific criterion, which in this case is the only criterion. So if I wanted to give Ethan, let's say a 90, I type in 90 and then click outside that box and it automatically selects, Great. That is where that would fall into in this criterion. Another way that you can create it, let's click outside of that is by just clicking on the criteria on that you'd like. So if Ethan did great, I'm going to click on great. And as you can see, it updates the number of points for this criteria. So this would be a good feature if you have several criterion in your rubric. So you can select one and then another and another criterion. And that way it'll add it up and give you the total number of points so you don't have to do any math. If you'd like to view a less expanded version, you can click this up arrow, and it'll show you where Ethan, Ethan's paper lied in the rubric. So we can see that it's not a 100 points but it's at 90. And if you scroll over, you can see more details about each of these levels of the criterion. Additionally, you can add private comments for Ethan to see. Maybe if you want him to work on certain things, this would be a great way to communicate and give your students feedback. Additionally, you can add comments. So you can add comments here by adding a comment. Or sorry, adding comment here. Or you can look at your comment banks. So any comments you've made that you can add. And if you look at the top of the screen, you can see it says not returned. So that means that you've created a grade for this specific assignment, but you have not returned it to your student for them to see. So if you'd like to return the assignment to them, you can click return. There are also some other options. If you click this down arrow, you can return this specific submission, or you can return multiple submissions if you've just graded multiple assignments of your students. Additionally, in this view, you can switch between students so you can go to the next student this way right now, Ethan is the only one that's completed this assignment. You can also use this down arrow to select different students and sort it by the last, firstName, lastName, or status when you are grading your assignments. 27.
