Writing in your classroom with Google Docs

Using Google Docs to improve the writing process within your classroom

Anyone who has taught or participated in a writing lesson an elementary classroom knows its a tedious multi-step process. The writing process often takes upwards of several weeks to complete. Teachers run into a ton of road blocks including but not limited too students leaving for pullout sessions, staff/ student absences, students loosing work, and lack of time to provide feedback to students etc. Using Google Docs eliminates a lot of these issues and best of all its FREE. 


  1. Google docs are so awesome! I learned that you can give people "commenting rights" this would be great so students could comment on others writing without changing the writing!

  2. Amy- I like your idea to use Google Docs to peer edit.
