Submitting a Template
Google Drive you are not able to add a document directly to the template gallery. By going directly to the template gallery at https://drive.google.com/templates you are able to add your templates there. You can submit a teacher or student created template.
On the right hand side of the template gallery is a link to “Submit a template.” Click on this to add your Google Docs to the gallery.
The document does not appear in the template gallery right away. Once the document is added to the gallery you can find it at http://drive.google.com/templates under “My Templates.” Again clicking on “Preview” of the template and copying the URL from preview mode will allow you to share the template with your students.
