From Alice Keeler - EdTech Tip of the Week: Essay in Google Slides
Scrolling in Google Docs can be a drag. When you use Google Slides each slide has a unique URL. Have students do their rough draft of their paper in Google Slides. Each paragraph on a separate slide. Assign students to turn in the link to the slide that contains their conclusions, this allows you to jump straight to the conclusions to provide feedback. If a student is stuck on a particular spot, they can link you to the slide that they are seeking feedback on.
Here are a few more ways, she suggests, to use Google Slides for essays from my recent blog post.

- Talk about Believability and Credibility: This video of a weatherman barely able to stand up as 2 men walk casually by has people saying he is exaggerating. This is a perfect conversation opener for the veracity of what you see and the need for news to alarm us. Or you could even use this trick play from Saturday where North Texas' punt returner returned a punt for a touchdown because he tricked the other team. We can't always believe our eyes, can we?
