Cleaning up Google Classroom for Summer
Posted on May 26th, 2017

Now that it is the end of the school year, what do you do with your Google Classroom?

1) Clean Up Google Drive
Google Classroom creates a “Classroom” folder in Google Drive. Within the Classroom folder is a folder for each class. You can safely move Classroom folders in Google Drive. From the home screen in Google Classroom, you can click on the folder icon on the class tile to locate the class folder in Google Drive. You can rename or move any of the folders within the class folder. You may want to save certain folders containing your favorite assignments.

Create an Archive Folder
Archiving a class does not archive the class folder in Google Drive. While in the class folder in Google Drive, you will notice from the breadcrumb trail that it is a subfolder of the Classroom folder. Above the list of documents and folders you will be able to click on the breadcrumb “Classroom” to jump to the main Classroom folder.....

2) Document Assignments
Now that you have a year of trial and error with using Google Classroom, determine what assignments worked well. Currently, you can not copy assignments from one class to another. You can safely save documents and create new folders in the Classroom folder. Create a folder within the Classroom folder of “Fav Assignments.” Within the folder create a Google Doc where you copy and paste the assignment titles, directions and links to the documents you attached. This will make it easier next year to recreate these assignments.

3) Archive the Class
From the home page, you can choose to archive the class. This saves the class, however, removes the class time from the home screen. It also removes the class from the Classroom menu. The ability to add to the class or edit by teachers or students is also disabled. On the class tile notice the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner. Click on this to choose to archive the class.

Archived Classes
You can find the archived classes by going to the Classroom menu in the upper left-hand corner. Towards the bottom is the link to the archived classes.
