Google Docs is a great platform for student collaboration, writing, and teacher feedback. It is what my students use for all of their written compositions as it is used in Google Classroom. As students are writing, though, did you know that there is a power-packed tool to help them seamlessly integrate research, images, and even ready-made tables and data charts? Students can conduct web research by simply highlighting a word or phrase from their paragraph and clicking on the “research” tool. There is even a built-in citation generator! I’ve used Google Draw to annotate some screenshots below to guide you through the process step-by-step and offer some tips for using this tool to its fullest potential. As always, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section!
