How to Create a Shareable Google Document

When you sign up for a Gmail account, you automatically receive a certain amount of storage in Google Drive for documents, slides, and other Google products. If you don’t have a Gmail account, then creating one is your first step. 

In Google Drive, use the drop-down list to select a blank document. 

Name your document something relevant, include the date of the class, and copy/paste Response Questions from the website into the document. We will use the SAME GOOGLE DOC all semester for response questions. (Papers and essays will be on separate documents.) 

When you’re finished answering the questions, click the blue Share button and type my email address into the People field.  

Be sure the “Can edit” option is checked. (You and I will communicate about your answers ON THE DOCUMENT.)  Then hit send.
