How to Add a Google Slides Assignment to Google Classroom


There is an incredible yet overwhelming amount of information and new websites for teachers to use for building an online classroom right now.  Teachers around the world are now expected to go digital and teach remotely while picking up new curriculums and skills across multiple platforms.  Personally, I've had to learn how to use Canvas for my district, but that does not seem to be the most popular site.  (Canvas is used more for college level students and while it has many features, there is a huge learning curve.)

Before picking up Canvas, I was using Google Classroom.  It's much simpler and very easy to useIf your school is a Google school, then your students are probably familiar with logging in with their Google accounts.  In this post, I will show you how to use a Google Slides resource from Teachers Pay Teachers in Google Classroom so that assigning work for your students becomes more manageable and efficient.

Step 1.  Make a Copy
When you download a resource made for Google Classroom on TpT, you'll follow a link which forces a copy of a document.  This will add a copy into your own Google Drive so that you can change and edit it however you like.  It might look something like this:


Step 2.  Edit the Title
Now you have your new document open and it is probably now titled, "Copy of...." Click the title at the top and change it something that will be easy for you to search if you need to look for it in your drive.  I might rename this particular one, "Fractions Assignment."  

Step 3.  Move and Organize
Next, you might want to move the file into a folder so you know where to find it.  You can click "File" and go down to "Move" or click the little icon at the top that looks like a file folder with an arrow.  (It's next to the star and to the right of the title.)  I'm putting this document in my math folder.

Now you're ready to assign this document to your students!  This particular assignment is a 12 page Google Slides document.  If I don't want to assign all 12 pages, I can delete certain pages so I have a shorter exit ticket assignment.  For example, the first two pages of this resource focuses on equal shares.  So if I have only taught about equal shares, then I might delete the other 10 pages and assign the rest later on. (Just go back to your TpT download and make another copy of the document!) 

Step 4.  Create an Assignment in Google Classroom
In your Google Classroom, click the "Classwork" tab.  Then click "+Create" and go down to "Assignment."  After that, you can title your assignment and write directions to your students.   Next, click the "Add" button at the bottom and select "Google Drive" to attach a document from your Google Drive.  This will open up a window where you can select the Google Slides document you made a copy of from Teachers Pay Teachers.

5.  Making a Copy for Each Student  (The most important step!)
Are you still with me?  We're almost done, I swear!  Now you're going to click the drop down menu and select, "Make a copy for each student."  This will make it so that each student gets their own copy of the document with their name attached to it.  You must select this if it is not a collaborative document and you want each student to turn in their own individual work.

6.  Assignment Details
On the right hand side you can select classes or a specific group of students you want to assign the activity to.  You can change the amount of points or make it an ungraded assignment, you can select a due date, organize the assignment by topic, and add a rubric.  Finally, you will click the "Assign" button in the top right corner.  You can also schedule and create drafts which is a super awesome feature if you've already planned out your assignments for the week. 

7.  Student Progress
Hooray!! Your assignment is now posted.  Now your students can click on the Google Slides document in their Google Classroom stream and begin working! When you click on "View Assignment" you can see the status of all the students who have turned in their work.  Once a student has submitted their work, they cannot go back and edit it.

You can see from this screenshot that 17 out of 25 students turned in their work.  On the left hand side, you can see that I graded the first two, but I have yet to grade the third student's work.  The fourth student earned 11/12 points.  (Student names and pictures are covered up for privacy)


8.  Grading Student Work
Click on a student's work to open it up and see their assignment.  You can give them a grade and add a private comment if you'd like.  If the student made an error, you can add a comment on a specific page by clicking the "Add comment" icon on the top toolbar.  You can also "Return" the work back which will give your student back their editing rights to make corrections.

    1. I had the same problem, but went back and reread and looked more closely. If you click on the thumbnail for whatever activity you want, it will send you to where you make a copy and it goes into your Google Drive.

  14. I select 'sparmythed' for my test. In the event that you don't care for your alternatives in the primary rundown, simply continue to produce another rundown until you track down the right hogwash word for you. It truly doesn't make any difference however, I pick words that don't show up excessively near genuine words.

  16. When you're selling products, whether only online, or in the real world, reviews are important. If you're trying to sell SEO services for example, before anyone buys your service, one of the first things they are going to do is try and buy google reviews for your particular service. This allows them to get firsthand information regarding your services and is a strong incentive for a person to purchase, or not purchase, any particular service.
