Starting in September 2010 my English classes will be using Google Docs as a method of sharing work in class. Students will be required to become familiar with Google Docs and will submit assignments through this app. Hard copy versions of assignments will be accepted as back-up submissions so that the students can verify that the assignment was done by the due date.
