Google Classroom: Writing Assignment Directions

By: Alice Keeler

google edu“One thing I love about Google Classroom is it’s simplicity. Almost any teacher can be up and running with a blended classroom in 30 minutes. However, Google Classroom is not a learning management system (LMS). You are not able to reuse classes and parents can not view the stream of assignments. When creating assignments the directions space is not a rich text editor. This means you can not bold text, change font size, insert images or embed video.

Google Doc

I recommend you create your directions in a Google Doc and attach it as the first asset in Google Classroom. This has many advantages.


Directions created in a Google Doc can be inserted into any Google Classroom assignment. They can be used semester after semester.” To read further please click here:
