Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

40 Ways African Schools and Teachers can Benefit from Google Classroom



All around the world today, technology-driven classroom is fast taking over the conventional brick and wall classroom delivery, making it difficult for schools and teachers who enjoy doing things the old way to be near irrelevant in this fast-paced educational environment.

Technology-driven classroom has become so prominent in the last decade that many kids today, especially those whose parents cannot foot their academic bills, are taking advantage of virtual learning to meet up with their more privileged peers. Paradoxically, such kids have gone ahead of their so called more privileged peers who are not exposed to the technology-driven educational system.

We are doing a great harm to this generation and the one to come if we remain hellbent on our conventional system- failing to take advantage of the good side of technological advancement in our time.

What I am about to discuss in this post is one of the platforms that make it easy for African schools and teachers benefit from technology-driven education.

Have you heard about Management Education System (MIS) before? A lot of schools are already spending thousands of dollars termly or sessionally to integrate this system into their school management processes in order to fast-track the entire academic and administrative activities of the school. 



When it comes to 'technologizing' the entire academic processes of the school, Google Classroom does it more perfectly and with a touch of fun.


And guess what! It's totally FREE!


What is this Google Classroom all about?


Google Classroom is a free web service for schools, non-profits, and anyone with a personal Google Account. Classroom makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect—inside and outside of schools. It's a tech educational tool by Google.



What are the Requirements for using Google Classroom?

While Google Classroom is a free tool, nonetheless there are certain requirements needed to make it work for you. Our interest here now is what schools and teachers need to make it work for them as a virtual classroom.

The Basic Requirements include the following:


Moreover, Google Classroom works perfectly well with other Google tools, thereby giving your school a thrilling package. As a Gmail account holder, you already have these in your kitty- Google mail, Hangouts, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slide and lots more- Google Classroom is compatible with all of them.

Do you see why African teachers and schools must take advantage of this awesome educational tool!

Below are 40 powerful ways your school can benefit while using the Google Classroom.


*** Teacher/Students
  1. Sharing Resources: Google Classroom allows you to take a document, video or link and push it out to your student
  2. Create a Lesson: More than simply assigning work to students, Google Classroom allows you to build an assignment. Include a description and attach multiple documents, links and videos. This puts the entire lesson in one place.
  3. Make Class Announcements: Google Classroom gives you a place to post your announcements. Unlike a website with one way communication, students can comment back on the announcement.
  4. Go Paperless: Using Google Docs you no longer need to collect and pass out paper. You can assign students a blank Google Doc or use a template that your students will fill out. Google Classroom creates a copy for each student and gives them a turn in button for when they are done.
  5. Protect Privacy: Rather than creating a global folder shared with all of the students in the class, Google Classroom restricts access to the documents to the teacher and the individual student.
  6. Reduce Cheating: Since the entire classes documents are not in a shared folder the temptation to copy another students work is eliminated.
  7. Classroom Collaboration: When sharing a document the teacher is able to choose if the students can view the document or can edit it. Creating a document and giving all the students in the class editing access to that same document allows every student to contribute their piece to a class project.
  8. Create a Discussion: A spreadsheet can be utilized to collect student opinions on a discussion topic. The ability to have multiple tabs allows for multiple discussion questions. Sharing a single Google spreadsheet with student editing access gets everyone on the same page quickly and gives every student a voice in the discussion.
  9. Organize Assignments with Due Dates: In creating an assignment in Google Classroom you are able to assign a due date that is clear for both you and the students.
  10. Capture the Middle of the Process: An important shift in the teacher/student relationship is to get away from evaluator and focus on being a coach to your students. Google Classroom places all of the students work into a folder that is easily accessible from your Google Drive. While students are in the middle of working on their assignment you are able to go in and insert comments and guide them through the process.
  11. Email Students: No longer do you need to create a group of student email addresses, Google Classroom allows you to email everyone at once.
  12. Notify Students Who May Need Help: Google Classroom show you who has and has not completed an assignment. Send an email notification providing tips for success and encouraging the student to work on the assignment.
  13. Assignment Q&A: When an assignment is posted to Google Classroom the students have the ability to comment on it. No longer do students have to wait to be called on to ask a question. This transcends the walls of the classroom to allow students to ask questions outside of class. When the teacher posts the response it is available to all of the students.
  14. Create an Ad Hoc Playlist: Google Classroom allows you to attach multiple YouTube videos to an announcement or assignment.
  15. Email Feedback: When returning work to students you can provide a global note to all the students or individually provide feedback. Google Classroom provides the ability to post a note to the assignment from the teacher, and allow the student to comment back. This replaces the one sided note in the margin of the students paper, providing a more dynamic experience.
  16. Create Folders: What was once a cumbersome process in Google Drive is now done automatically. The teacher has a folder in Google Drive that contains a folder for each assignment. This makes locating student work a snap!
  17. Link Directly: While Google Classroom places the student work into a folder for the teacher to find, a student list with a link to the students work is easily accessible directly from Google Classroom. This reduces the need of the teacher to dig through their Google Drive to find the work a student has completed.
  18. Multiple Files in an Assignment: Google Classroom allows you to assign more than a single document. This means students can create a multi-stage project and submit all of their pieces in one place.
  19. Easily View Student Submission: Google Classroom clearly counts how many students have and have not submitted an assignment.
  20. Collect Data: Linking to a Google Form or just a Google spreadsheet from an announcement allows you to quickly gather data from students.
  21. Share with Multiple Classes: If you teach multiple sections of the same course, Google Classroom will create the assignment in each section.
  22. Collaborative Note Taking: Create a Google document and designate some students to be note takers for the discussion. Students can collaboratively take notes on the document and those notes are easily accessible by the other students through an announcement in Classroom.
  23. Display Student Work: With student permission, use an announcement to link to student work that is available in your Classroom Google Drive folder.
  24. One Student One Slide: Set an assignment to be a single Google Slides presentation that the class can edit. Modify the slide master to provide a template for student work when they insert their own slide.
  25. Target Parent Phone Calls: Google Classroom clearly shows which students did not complete an assignment. Use this list to make parent calls.
  26. Polling: Create an assignment to find out which students are attending a school event. It can as well be polling on any other issue. If yes, have students write their name on a Google Doc that contains event information and then submit the assignment. Now you have a clear list of which students are attending. Unlike a Google Form, you also have a clear list of who is not.
  27. Share a Document with the Class: Google Classroom makes document distribution simple.
  28. Know Who Edits a Collaborative Document: Instead of sharing a Google Doc as anyone can edit, Google Classroom allows you to give edit access to all of the students for a single document without anonymous animals.
  29. Link to a Website: Relying on students to type in a web address correctly costs instructional minutes as you try to get everyone on the same page. Link to websites in a Google Classroom announcement and get everyone on the same page quickly.
  30. After Hours Help: Instead of sending students home to struggle on an assignment, students can post questions to the class to hopefully receive a peer or teacher response before it is due.
  31. Distribute Notes: Rather than focusing on note taking, students are able to focus on discussing. Posting the notes to a Google Classroom announcement allows students to pull up the notes easily and then spend class time talking about them instead of taking them.
  32. Sharing Informal Learning: As students discover ways to connect their classroom learning to their lives they are able to share this on Google Classroom. Students are able to share pictures, Google Docs, YouTube videos or links with the class.
  33. Email the Teacher: Google Classroom gives students an icon to email the teacher directly. Students can easily email the instructor their questions. 
  34. Have One Place for All Files: Google Classroom is Google Drive management. Any documents students submit via Google Classroom are saved in Google Drive. This gives you one place to check for student work. When students do work in other products have them take a screenshot and submit the screenshot to Google Classroom.
  35. Students Create Google Docs: On the turn in page for students, clicking create allows students to start a new Google Document. This document is automatically attached in Google Classroom and titled the same as the assignment. The document title also is appended with the student name and saved in the assignment folder in Google Drive.

School Admin/Teachers
  1. Collaborate with Peers (PLC’s): Teachers can join a classroom as a student. This allows a grade level or subject area team to create a Google Classroom for the teacher group. Meeting notes, data and other documents can be linked and shared from Google Classroom. Teachers can submit their classroom results from benchmarks or other projects by using the “TURN IN” button in Classroom.
  2. Virtual Faculty Meetings: The principal can ask all of the teachers to join a Google Classroom. Short videos can be linked in the Classroom to facilitate a flipped approach to faculty meetings. Links to Google Forms can be provided to have teachers provide data or respond to polling questions. Different departments can post announcements to the stream to share their news.
  3. Streamline Counseling: High school counselors can invite all of the students on their caseload to a Google Classroom. Rather than an announcement in the school bulletin that goes to everyone, using announcements in Google Classroom targets the announcement to the students who need the information. Students can then find the resources the counselor is sharing easily in one place. Notifying all of the students on the caseload is easy utilizing the email options in Google Classroom. Students can “MARK AS DONE” different tasks the counselor sets for students, this makes it easy to identify the students who did not complete their assigned tasks.
  4. Teach together—Co-teach a course with up to 20 other instructors.
  5. Set permissions—Management can always decide to either enable or disable Classroom for all users, specific organizational units, and other G Suite for Education school districts. Also determine which teachers can create and manage classes.
