Thin Slides is a versatile and simple way to get students engaged by listening, speaking, presenting and more. For teachers, you can use it to activate prior knowledge, check for understanding and break up the monotony of a lesson.
Normally, this is done by creating a slidedeck in Google Slides, setting the permissions to Can Edit and pushing the link out to students via email, Share or Google Classroom.
Doing it those ways works just fine, but there are some drawbacks. One common drawback is students not staying on their slide, accidentally or purposefully. Below is my idea to facilitate this activity, but avoiding accidental or purposeful errors on the students' parts.
Step 1: Start an assignment in Google Classroom. Click Create and choose Slides. Be sure to put detailed instructions and expectation.
