  6. Fill out any additional information associated with the selected action.
    This may include adding a description, instructions, bullet points, a due date, topics, or enabling or disabling student comments. From there, assign, post, ask, schedule, or save as a draft.
  7. View the resource in Google Classroom.
    While this is a completely optional step, it is always nice to be able to preview what the shared resource will look like in Google Classroom.
