1. Navigate to https://classroom.google.com (Note that you have to use your school gmail account)
2. Choose the “I am a Teacher” option
3. Click the “+” sign in the top right-hand corner next to your Google account
4. Select “Create Class”. Give it a name and a section, and click “Create”
Once your students are enrolled, you’re ready to start using Classroom. You have two options with your classroom page. You can add announcements such as a morning message, directions for an activity you want the students to do that will not be turned in, or discussion questions, or you can create an assignment for them. Posts are displayed with the newest post on top. Here is what the page look like. Notice the announcement slid below the assignment since the teacher put them in in that order, but the student has the ability to comment below. (and this is a reason to discuss commenting etiquette and expectations before releasing them on the page)
So that’s it. It truly is easy to use and offers so much. If you are interested in exploring assignment options, you might check out the links below for additional ideas.
