Google Classroom: Assess (and Access) Student Work Faster
A great tip sheet and infographic from @alicekeeler http://alicekeeler.com/2016/11/22/google-classroom-assess-student-work-faster/

How to get “read receipts” on the emails you send in Gmail
Initiate the request before you send the email. When you are composing your email, there’s a “more” button or a drop down arrow that will reveal that choice. See image below:

6 Awesome Uses for Revision History
(Repost) This Google Apps tool has some useful applications, see +Eric Curts post here for the complete list. It is available in Docs, Sheets, Slides and Drawings. Also available in Google Docs is the Draftback App (needs to be added from the Chrome Web Store). Draftback plays through the development of the document like a quick video, making it possible to see if large chunks of text were pasted in at one time. +Google for Education

OpenEd and the Lesson Plan Add-on for Google Docs...New Science Resources
(OpenEd has an Add-on to make creating lessons incorporating resources a little quicker for you.) They’ve recently added 1,000 new resources aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, including some from CrashCourse, SciShow and more! OpenEd also has content on TEKS for ELA and Reading, as well as TEKS for Math for Texas Teachers. I first saw this in a post from +Richard Byrne. He has a short how-to video on accessing and using that Google Docs Add-on within this article.
