Tool: Copying google docs to students' Google Drive

This feature allows you to create a template, and then post a link that causes students to have to copy that template to their google drive so they can edit.


This is particularly useful if you are using graphic organizers, worksheets, etc that students need to work on in Google Docs.


  1. Go to the google doc you wish to distribute to the students.
  2. Click on Share.
  3. Click on “Copy Link” under Get link.
  4. Paste the link into a blank document, and change the last word (sharing) to (copy).  It should look like this




Force Copy: asdf

 Copy and paste that link into your instructions for an assignment in Canvas, or any other platform you are using.
