The document tab is a great tool for teaching many different subjects. Similarly to our other tabs, the document tab is also a collaborative tool for you and your student to use whenever you need a more structured writing experience.

You can rename the Document tab by double-clicking the name. Right-click on the document's name to Disallow tab to be closed or Disallow changes made to the document.
You can scroll through the document by scrolling with your mouse or trackpad, or by grabbing the grey line on the side of the document.
You can always follow your students work, as their name appears on the document once they start typing.
Whenever you highlight a part of a text on the document tab, your students will see what you're highlighting, making it easier to follow where you are in the document. Your students can also highlight words or parts of a text to help you find the part they need help with.
