To protect our content, we have the google files set to View Only. To have the students be able to work with the files, they will need to create a copy and add it to their drive. Having the students make their own copy ensures that students' work is theirs. How can a student copy the file to their drive? Here's how... 

1. They open the attachment found in the lesson. 

2. They can then go to File > Make a copy

3. The last step is to Rename the file or leave it with it's "Copy" title, select the desired folder location, and Save

Then they will be able to edit the copied document!
