Ms. Drasby,

Greetings class Carrolyn and Welcome to Google Drive Help Community 😀
 
Thank you for asking about more details for protecting a shared Google Drive Folder.
 
When sharing a folder with another person please follow the below steps:
  1. On your computer, go to drive.google.com.
  2. Click the folder you want to share.
  3. Click Share Add people.
  4. Under "People," type the email address or Google Group you want to share with.
  5. To choose how a person can use the folder, click the Down arrow Down Arrow.
  6. Click Send. An email is sent to people you shared with.
You may prevent an editor from sharing the folder by following the below steps:
  1. On your computer, go to drive.google.com.
  2. Click the folder you don''t  want a colleague or friend editor to res-hare.
  3. Click Share Add people.
  4. In lower right corner, Click Advanced
  5. Make sure to check: "Prevent editors from changing access and adding new people"
  6. Click Save Changes
One more tip when sharing don't grab a quick  link to share.
When grabbing a quick link it often switches a folder or file on to "Public Anyone with Link".
 
You may check the share setting by following these steps:
  1. On your computer, go to drive.google.com.
  2. Click the folder you want to share.
  3. Click Share Add people.
  4. Under "Share with Other" if you see Anyone with Link or Anyone on Internet change it 
  5. Next to "Anyone with the link," click the Down arrow Down Arrowand Select "Off Only Specific People Can Access"
You may learn more about Share Setting from the following Google Drive Help Center Resource: Share folders in Google Drive
 
Please feel free to post back if you have further questions.

Thanks for the response. Those were very clear directions and I hope will be useful for others. I should have specified that I want to protect a folder that I would like to share with a non-Google email account. It appears that my only option is to send the shareable link in which case I cannot limit other users actions in the advanced settings.  I was hoping there was an extension I could add to allow for this. I frequently collaborate with less tech savvy people who do not have a Google account. Anyhow, I was just curious. In this particular case I ended up providing paper copies, not ideal but within the comfort zone of the other person. 

Thanks again for your time.
