Google Docs & Forms Module Agenda
Full Day – Six Hours
Changes Highlighted in Red

This session will provide guidance in using revision tools found online with your students and peers. Participants will create online documents and forms and work collaboratively to revise them. Revision is a critical piece of the writing process—and of your classroom curriculum. The sharing features of Google Docs/Forms enable you and your students to decide exactly who can access and edit documents. You’ll find that Google Docs/Forms helps promote group work and peer editing skills, and encourages multiple revisions and peer editing both for your students and when collaborating with your peers.

No partial credit for participation in the session.
Use positive cooperative learning skills during the session.
Expect to share and learn from others.
Ask for group expectations (trainer discretion), i.e. parking lot/question board.
