🛠 Built-in Features of Google Docs
Take full advantage of the built-in features of Google Docs to provide timely and meaningful feedback
The comment feature will add comments to the right Google Docs margins. One advantage to adding comments for feedback is that they create a stacked list in the margin making it easy for students to track. Another feature of comments is the ability to assign the task to a specific person by adding + or @ followed by an email. Once assigned, an alert email is sent to the person who has been assigned the task. This feature would serve as a great reminder for students about reading and reacting to teacher feedback.
The suggestion mode allows just that- suggestions. Suggestions can be made without changing the original text within the document. Students can review the suggestions and choose to accept them or deny them. If students accept the suggestions, the original text is replaced with the suggested text and if denied, the suggestion is removed and the original text remains.
