Do you have a student who gets overwhelmed by long assignments? Maybe all your students do! Sometimes its good to take long assignments and break them down, step by step.
Google Forms is a great way to do this!
For each step of the instructions, make a separate section by clicking on the symbol that looks like two parallel lines.
In this new section, type out all the directions for the first step. Then click the double bar symbol again to make another section for the second step.
Students will only see one section at a time, with a ‘next’ button to lead to the next section. They also have the option of going ‘back’ to a previous section if they need to.
This is what the students will see!
***Teaching Tip!*** Always check to be sure your Google Form is working properly BEFORE giving it to your kids. Do this by using the “view” button at the top. Go though the whole thing just like you were a student. I have found SO many mistakes this way and saved myself a lot of trouble!
This is a great way to give instructions so that you know your students get just one bit at a time and can’t get lost or miss something.
Plus, within a section, along with the instructions, you can add images by clicking the “image” icon to the right (looks like a mountain).
I also like to and questions that go along with each step, so I know they are mentally tracking along with what they are supposed to be doing!
