Number your assignments

This is a tip from Alice Keeler. She suggests numbering your assignments to help you and your students find the work in Google Drive needed for the assignment. It might be easier for you as the teacher to say to a student, "look for assignment #035." or "you are missing #035, #042, and #043."


Alice recommends recommend you start each assignment with a 3 digit sequential number. The way a computer "alphabetizes" numbers clusters 1, 11 and 110 together and 2, 22 and 210 together. Always using a 3 digit number will solve this problem. So starting your assignment title with #001, #002, etc will help you and your students organize their work. Numbering the documents that go with the assignment will also help with organization.
