The Stream is the flow of information, documents, and assignments within your Google Classroom. The Stream page shows upcoming assignments, gives you the option to show or hide deleted items, shows the class Join code, and allows you to make announcements or create assignments.
Students tab in Google Classroom displays class join code, a current list of students who have joined class, and settings for the teacher to moderate commenting and posting rights for students.
Use this section to add general class information like syllabus and overview. A direct link to the Drive folder and to the Calendar in both Google Calendar and Classroom is available here too.

Grading & Feedback
Students can keep track of what's due from STREAM with Assignments page.
Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades.
I think its very important to have a feedback loop, where youre constantly thinking about what youve done and how you could be doing it better.
GRADE & RETURN WORKCreate & assign assignment. Students TURN IN.
Click the title of the assignment to open it.
Click on a students name to show files attached & a comment section.
Classroom categorizes every assignment: Not Done, Done, Late or Done Late
Assign a grade: Clicking No Grade and enter grade.
