Google Docs and the Dreaded Research Paper

Google Docs and the Dreaded Research Paper:

"Google docs has transformed the writing instruction of the classes I teach. Prior to our school's adoption of Google Aps, I gave significant feedback on the margins of student papers. I also used the comment boxes in Pages or MSWord when my students began to hand in their papers electronically via email. I liked the freedom that the infinite space of the comment box gave me. This space enabled me to rework students sentences and to specifically and directly target individual words and sentences. It did take a bit longer as I found myself giving more feedback, but ultimately I liked the improvements I saw in my students writing as a result of the increase in comments I was able to given them. "
