Google Docs is Not Good for Newsletters…But This Program Is

Interestingly, one of teachers biggest complaints when adopting GSuite for Education is that they can no longer create beautiful newsletters because the formatting options are not strong in Docs.

But I know that Docs’s sibling Slides is a great option for this.

This makes complete sense. It should be easy to make a program that is designed for presentations to be eye-catching and engaging. The challenge is making it fit on an 8.5X11 in sheet of paper so that it can be sent home in a Friday folder. (Of course, you are only printing because your principal requires it, otherwise you would be emailing these to parents.)
