Use a shared Google Calendar

Used a shared calendar for your PLT, your club, or your sport. Go to your own Google Calendar, create a new calendar, invite your teammates, students, parents, anyone!, and use it to keep track of events and meetings.

Once you add people, they’ll get an invite to see, view and edit the calendar, and your work can begin. See the example below for a quick how-to.

Keep a running list of frequently-used comments

noun_16723_cc

If you grade papers using Google Docs, keep a document of your most frequently-used comments open as you grade. You can cut and paste comments as you need them. Or you can do as I did – I shared this list of common writing errors with my students, and then referred to them by number in the comments.

If you’d like to look at your document with the paper you’re grading side by side, use a split screen extension.
