Share Student Writing Online

Many times a teacher may be the only person to read a student’s writing. The student writes it, the teacher grades it, and then that’s the end. However, a student’s motivation to write more, write better, and revise their work can be greatly influenced by the audience that will be reading their work. With Google Documents and the power of the Internet, student’s can write for a much larger audience that includes their peers, their community, and even the world.

One simple way to expand the audience for a student’s writing is to change the visibility settings on the document to make it viewable by their school or the entire world. The link to the student document can then be shared in a variety of ways, such as a link on the school website.
