How to Search for Publicly Shared Google Documents

Searching by file type and searching by domains is a great way for students to refine their Google searches. Searching for and within a DOC, a PPT, or XLS file can lead students to resources that they might not otherwise have seen. Along the same lines, searching for publicly shared Google Docs, Slides, and Spreadsheets can take students to valuable content that they might not otherwise find in a standard Google search.
