Format Matters

Help your students practice responding in a format that communicates the worthiness of their ideas.


As students learn about formatting, help them along by providing templates which include important formatting assistance.

  1. In Google Classroom, add a doc or slides to an assignment using “Each student gets a copy”.
  2. In your doc, use title and heading levels to provide a skeleton outline of the work required. In subsequent tasks, you can fade this assistance by just giving instructions about using heading levels. 
  3. To apply heading levels, click where it says “Normal text” and change this to “Heading 1”.
  4. In slides, you can add headings to slides to guide the students so they get the correct structure and link it to the format conventions of the theme they choose.
