    For anyone who has not yet joined A to Z on Google Docs, Cassie did a wonderful job in setting up the group and there are 100's of documents separated into folders by categories. If you are interested in contributing and using the available documents, set up a google account, PM me your email and I will add you. Google Docs is a wonderful free tool that I have been using with my students. Since we are 1:1 laptop several students can work and edit the same document. Why re-invent the wheel if someone else has already made the form? You can make changes and then be sure to repost your changes because they may benefit someone else.

    Two more people just signed up. The more that sign up, the more pooled resources we will have available to all. Also when you sign up, please add your documents so we build a great resource for all.

    I've signed up, but haven't yet had much time to look at what's there or to add some documents. That's near the top of my To-Do list this week while I'm on March Break.

    I just shared (I think) a file with some Literature Circle activities; could someone let me know if I did it correctly? I'll show up as keepersmom on Google.

    You can take a tour of Google Docs here: http://www.google.com/google-d-s/tour1.html

    You will need to create a Google account, which you can do using any email (I think). Sign up here: https://www.google.com/accounts/New....google.com/?hl=en&ltmpl=homepage&nui=1&hl=en

    Once you sign up, send your email address (the one you used to sign up for Google Docs) to me or chemteach, and we'll send you an invite to the group.

    After that, you'll be able to log in to the group and view/download/upload a whole bunch of documents.

    It might mean that you weren't given access permission to view AND edit. I'll go in and double-check.

    What kinds of documents are we talking about?

    To be honest, I can't think of anything I use that's a "document" per se.

    Lesson Planning forms, Lab Report Formats and templates, Different Activities like exit cards, vocab activities, differentiated learning ideas, foldables, interactive notebook ideas, and many other subjects. This is just a way that we can share documents without having to PM each person and e-mail the document.

    Alice, you've shared a couple of things that might go nicely as Google docs, come to think of it...

    ChemTeach I noticed that you put up some stuff on interactive notebooks. I am really interested in that for next year but when I clicked on the tab there was nothing in it. Is it my computer (easily could be!)

    There are several empty folders on the A to Z Google Docs. I think that people have accidently moved the folder on Google Docs. If you want to save a file to your computer, open the actual document and go to File--Download As--then you can choose Word, PDF, or several others. If you choose to move the file then it moves it from everyone. Sue--I am going to put the stuff back on Interactive Notebooks right now and I will try to fix the others sometime tonight.

    I can't wait to figure this out! I am taking an inservice tomorrow on Google Docs! (I hope-It ends at 12 and I have a babyshower at 12 like 45 mins away) Its a 3 hour class so I could go for two hours...I think it would be worth it bc Ive heard so many good things about google docs and I want to see what it is all about...then I can join yours too and spread my knowledge!

    Ugh! So disappointed! I signed up and Cassie walked me through it (thanks a ton! I could not have done it without you- I was so lost!) and I was going to upload a ton of stuff and my computer crashed! I just spoke to the computer fixer and it cannot be fixed. When I finally start making more, I will post! It is such a great idea! Thanks for starting it and sharing! It is amazing!
