How to have an assignment for a student in Google Classroom be available for another adult to assist remotely

 If you use Google Classroom and have a student or students who work with another adult, it can be at times difficult to assist that student remotely.

One solution is to try the following:

  • Create the assignment as you typically would (with a copy for each student)
  • To have the adult who is working with the student be able to see the document and assist make sure to do the following:
    • In Classroom select the Class Drive Folder (available in the Classwork section in Google Classroom
  • Find the assignment folder and open it
  • Find the student's document and open it up
  • Select share in the upper right and add the adult's email
  • Now both the student and the adult can talk (in a breakout room in Zoom or Meet) and work together on the same document
  • The student still has the ability to turn in directly from the open document
Embedded below is a 2 minute and 40 second YouTube tutorial showing from the teacher point of view, student point of view, as well as the adult assisting's point of view.

Another solution is below:

  • create your document for the assignment and make a copy of the document as well 
    • be sure to keep them separate
  • share the original assignment with your class except the one child (you will be sharing the same document with the student in the next step
  • with the copied document  add the adult who works with the child directly from the sharing settings
  • create an assignment in Google Classroom and share with that specific student
  • now when students go into breakout rooms the student and the adult providing assistance can both work on the assignment together as they talk it over
  • note that there is no blue Turn In button on the top right of the doc 
    • the student would need to go back into the assignment and select Mark as Done
  • the teacher would then need to go into the document in Drive (since they created it) and see the assignment that way
Embedded below is a 2 minute and 18 second YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
