How to Add Comments in Google Docs

In a document on which you have editing or commenting rights, highlight or place your cursor next to the text, image, cell, or slide to which you want to add a comment. Click either the comment icon in the toolbar or the one that appears on the righthand side of the document.

A comment box opens up. Type in your comment and then click “Comment” to submit your notes.

Imagery: Use the five senses to describe your place.

  • Sight
  • Sound
  • Taste
  • Touch
  • Smell

Weave the action with the descriptions. 

  • Sentence Structure: As (noun) (verb), …
    Ex: As Mr. Funk read the example, Marvin was playing Cup Pong with four other students in the class.
    Ex: As the dog barked, the burglar tried to quiet him with a piece of hamburger.
  • Sentence Structure: Start sentence with words like “during,” “while,” “before,” “after.”
    Ex: After the lights went out, everyone in the elevator panicked.
    Ex: While the fire alarm rang through the building, the firefighter rushed in to save people.
  • Sentence Structure: Start sentences with “-ing” words.
    Ex: Running through the woods, Mr. Funk made his escape from the gang of angry students.
    Ex: Digging through her backpack, Janet pretended to search for the homework she knew she didn’t do.
