Many of the options in the Common Editor are familiar to folks. We want to focus on a few that can really help your readers.
This defaults to "Paragraph but consider using Headers to break up your content. Headers break up content and make text easier to read on screen.

Copy a YouTube URL or embed media from sites like Quizlet, Flipgrid, or Google Slides.
You can link files directly from your Google Drive.
For those comfortable with HTML, you do have the ability to add limited HTML code.
The Curriculum Editor
The Curriculum Editor contains the same features with a few additional options.
