Tips...

If you want your students to be forced to make a copy, follow these steps:

In the URL up in the address bar delete the /edit and replace it with /copy.  Then have your students use the new link.  It will force them to create a copy.

Example:

This is the original URL:
https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1CUw_HiIGlOhJNfhDvrhHhPbpxGD2sNB8HqcIwaV6N3M/copy#slide=id.gdd8f7c14d_0_41

Change /copy to edit so it looks like this:

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1CUw_HiIGlOhJNfhDvrhHhPbpxGD2sNB8HqcIwaV6N3M/edit#slide=id.gdd8f7c14d_0_41
