Well done Amanda! That was a great post and I learned a lot about how Google Docs can be used in the classroom. Thanks so much for sharing!
This is a really great way of having students work together to create writing pieces. I love how they were able to comment on the Google Doc and edit their work. This is definitely something I would love to try!
Amanda, awesome idea! I saw this in action in your class! Great redesign of the lesson and also incorporating technology in your classroom!
Your lesson is innovative and engaging! The screencasts you made for your students are excellent and a great way to in-flip!
