I'm finally ready to archive my pandemic classes! I know how to do that thanks to Jerry, but when I go into my google drive it is a disaster;( There is no organization as to tons of graded docs mixed in with links, teacher made docs, and shared docs. I know I didn't set it up correctly, or made folders as I started out, but honestly was flying by the seat of my pants. I want to clean this area up but looking for suggestions on how to do this. Thank you!!

I'm a big organizer and folder lover. I personally, like to have a main folder for each year, and then subcategories that work best for me. For example, I work in a Pre-K Center, so I organized all of my folders such as "G01" (my class code), "music resources", "parent resources", "read alouds", etc. This seems to work the best for my brain. The key is to think about what is going to work best for you, and what the documents have in common. Hope this helps!

This is also what I do. I have a folder for each year, but since I have moved grade levels, I started a main folder for each grade level, then moved the year folders under those folders.

My drive is a mess as well. Is there a way to get work turned in on Google Classroom into a designated folder?

I am in the same boat as all of these professionals; however, I do not see any suggestions. What am I missing?

I know. And then when someone shares someone with you organization goes out the door. I have started creating a master document and then link to that. So I end up with one document with say 20 links instead of 20 documents(they still exist) but I can easily find them.

I am missing something and I believe it is because I didn't create individual folders for each group. I created the assignment, assigned a topic for it. Now, I am getting pop ups from gc that it doesn't exceed 100 topics and it won't let me create any new ones.

So question is, can I rename my assignments, say unit 3 for all, and now organize it into a folder, or is it too late?

I've been playing around with it, but not sure if I am doing the right thing. Thanks all in advance!
