Step #1: Review the Teaching Guide
The first thing to do is read through the teaching guide and identify teaching activities that can be done on Google Classroom.
- Note that because resources were initially designed to be completed face-to-face, some activities will need to be modified or skipped to fit the structure of your distance learning classroom.
Step #2: Add Activities to Your Google Classroom
Next, begin assigning each activity to your Google Classroom (add each activity under the same topic - click to learn more about topics). Then, label each activity (“Task 1,” Task 2,” etc.) to help students follow along.
- PDFs and Google Slides - These formats can be shared by copying and pasting the links from the “Teaching Materials” section on the Teaching Guide.
- Google Forms - To share a Google, you MUST make a copy and save it to your Google Drive. Then, share the new copy with your students. - - If you do not make a new copy, you will NOT be able to access your students' responses.
Step #3: Record a Loom Video
Once all of the assignments have been added to your Google Classroom, record a teaching video for your students. Use Loom to video yourself, while also sharing your screen. On the screen, you could share a teaching PowerPoint, a view of their Google Classroom, teaching examples, etc.
- Example Teaching Video - - See Below - - Here's a sample video of me using Loom + Google Classroom to teach a lesson to my students.
Step #4: Add the Loom Video to Your Google Classroom
After you've used Loom to record your teaching video, copy the link and share it on your Google Classroom.
- Classwork > + Create > Material
- Sample Title - - "Start Here -Teaching Video"
