Google Classroom

Google Classroom saves teacher time and makes differentiation simple! If you are using Chromebooks, you should be using Google Classroom!

Classroom makes it so simple to post content, make copies for each student, organize all docs in Google Drive and assign specific content to specific students. Check out the Differentiation with Google Classroom video below.


Differentiating with Google Classroom

The Assignments we've created and shared via our Master Google Classrooms have been designed for differentiation. To use them, you will "reuse" the assignment in your own Classroom, modify it for different groups of students, and then assign the variations of it to different students.
