Google Classroom was designed with the goal of saving teachers and students time by organizing assignments and class content in one, easy-to-access, online space. With Google Classroom, teachers can create an online classroom, invite students to the class and then create and distribute assignments. Within Google Classroom, students and teachers can have conversations about the assignments, students can respond to questions, parents can view what is happening with their student in the Google Classroom, and more!

Step-by-step Directions for Using "Share to Classroom"
Using Google Classroom for Online Teaching by John Sowash
1. Create a NEW course (don't reuse your existing course)
2. Combine your students into one section (in most situations)
3. Organize your content by weeks, not units (better for self-paced learning)
4. Enable posting and commenting (it's not as scary as it sounds)
5. Put your face in the course (you won't like it, but it's important!)
