“One thing I love about Google Classroom is that it is not rostered. I can create a Google Classroom class for any purpose. After school club, collaboration groups for my students, differentiated spaces, special projects, challenge activities, remediation resources, etc…
Class Within a Class
There are many good reasons to have multiple Google Classroom classes within a single class. For example if I teach high school algebra I can create an additional Google Classroom class for
- Practice resources. Skills such as common denominator can be challenging for some algebra students, but is not part of the Algebra curriculum. Provide videos, digital practice quizzes and other resources to help support students with pre requisite skills.
- Problem of the week. I might want to create a Google Classroom class to allow students to explore challenging problems. Since the problems are optional I would not want to put them in my regular class as if it were an assignment.
- Differentiated project groups. If students are working in groups on real world problems that demonstrate “persevering in problem solving.” The projects require students to add to it and work over it a long period of time. A separate class might be the way to organize that.”To read further please click here:http://www.alicekeeler.com/teachertech/2015/09/20/google-classroom-link-to-other-google-classes/
