We discussed this platform in class earlier this semester and worked with it a little bit, but I am thrilled to say that I was a part of a collaborative team of professionals which utilized Docs for an important presentation for ENGL 515’s College Readiness Textual Analysis. We worked in parts and examined the following texts:

Supporting Students in a Time of Core Standards: Grades 9-12 – Sarah Brown Wessling

Supporting Students in a Time of Core Standards: Grades 6-8 – Sarah Brown Wessling

The Successful High School Writing Center – Dawn Fels and Jennifer Wells

Google Docs is a great way to collaborate online in a group setting, without having to be present. This is beneficial for most students, especially when we all work and have busy lives, in addition to our academic ones. These are the steps we followed

*Open up an account with Google
*Click on the drop down menu where it says “more”
*scroll until you find “documents”
*Open up Docs and determine which programs best suit your needs

The best way to become familiar with this platform is to play with it. Open things up, type text, use different formats, record what you can or change it. It’s truly that easy and I will be certain to use it again! The subsequent PDF is a copy of our work.
