Text on Both Sides of Images in Google Docs
Try using a table to have more control of how your text looks around an image. Click here for a gif showing how it’s done from Jake Miller.



Working on Sub Plans? Try a MultiMedia Text Set!
This will allow students to:
  • Have all of the instructions they need...in your words
  • Work at their own pace
  • See the order of the tasks
I discovered this in the Google Advanced Training Course, to see their example, click here.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be for sub plans. It can be for any unit/lesson! Keep it as simple or as in-depth as you would like. +Google for Education Here are a few other ideas for use:
  • Assign in Google Classroom
  • Add longer, deeper assignments
  • Give options for presenting what they know
  • Incorporate a video using EdPuzzle
  • Incorporate an interactive image using Thinglink
  • Have them contribute to a Padlet Wall, instead of a Google Doc so they can’t edit each other’s posts and you can choose to moderate them before they are seen by all.
  • Use a google form for them to turn in links to their work
If you’re in my district and want help creating one, just let me know and we can collaborate!
