Student access to uploaded assignments

Is there a way to allow students to access assignments that their classmates have uploaded into Canvas?

I have assigned each student a term paper which they'll upload into Canvas.

I want students to be able to read each other's papers.

Is there a way that the uploaded assignments can be accessible by the entire class?

Hi @ggillombardo ...

When homework is submitted to an assignment content item in Canvas, it is submitted to the instructor(s) assigned to the course.  It is never submitted to other students in this way.  I've seen posting here in the Community where people have set up a separate discussion topic, allowed attachments to the topic, and then students just post a copy of their assignment to the discussion addition to submitting it to the instructor.  Do you think this might work for your needs?
