I was wandering around Twitter and Google+ a few moments ago to see what was new in the world of tech in ed. One of the most awesome things I found is this infographic a fellow educator put together on how to use Google Classroom as a student. It really breaks it all down really easily! So much so that I thought it would be handy for everyone to see. Thank you to Alice Keeler for all of the hard word to put it together!
I had a teacher ask me if there was a way to hide or remove students who are no longer in your class. The answer is maybe. It depends on if they are officially dropped from your class and appearing as red in your roster and gradebook. If not, then no, you cannot remove them until they have been unenrolled from the class. If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:
