50 Things You Can Do With Google Classroom: Alice Keeler, Libbi Miller

50 Things You Can Do With Google Classroom [Alice Keeler, Libbi Miller] on Amazon.com. 

Ken Morrison's insight:
Easy to learn and Easy to apply

If you created a Google Classroom but don't use it, I strongly suggest this very easy read with quality tips to help you get excited about using Google Classroom.  I would suggest reading five per day and applying one or two. Then read another five a few days later.  My best advice for those thinking of using Google Classroom is to simply commit to using it for one unit first, with no guilt of not using it on a daily basis after that.
