Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Summary Writing: Earning a Top Grade - Section 4: How to set up an electronic document


Do not ask me why, but this is the second year in a row that I have not done what I am about to tell you to do until receiving 60 or so documents in my inbox or as a shared document with titles like Document 1, or 5, or 8, or …well, you get the picture. Opening these documents does no good either because they lack headings! So I take a deep breath, remind myself that these students have little experience with this process, and realize that to ensure it does not continue I had better nip it in the bud NOW.
