How should I use google docs to do a group assignment?

Use a Shared Google Doc

Step #1: One of the students:

  • Creates the document
  • Gives it an appropriate title 
  • Create the title page
  • Paste the assignment outline (Table of Content) from the assignment

Step #2: That student shares the document with his/her group members with edit permission.

Step #3: Students decide on who is going to work on what parts / paragraphs.

Step #4: Then they start writing (together). Questions can be left in comments or colored text.

Step #5: Meet together to resolve complex topics.

Step #6: Finalize the document.
