Beside the intelligence behind what you see, Delve has another layer to help you and your students keep things together: the Board. The Board helps you deal with a "Shared with Me" that has gone out of control (well, to be fair, it goes out of control because you're using the Cloud effectively, so that's a good thing).
When you see documents in Delve that "go together" you can pin them to a Board, allowing you to create a page of documents all on a particular project.
What you see below you is what I see this morning when I click on "Me" (Cal Armstrong) ... it shows the two documents we used school wide for our special day-before-March-Break (Attendance & Coverages), our Spreadsheet on Relationship Mapping at at our School, and then three attachments on an email that came in first thing this morning. None of these are what I want... I need to see the documents for New Faculty. So I click on NEW FACULTY under BOARDS at the lower left. It's there because (a) I made the Board and (b) I've used the Board in the past. New Faculty are shown the Board first thing so that it appears for them, too.
|This is after clicking Me this morning at about 11am. It'll be different now.|
So, instead, in Delve I (and several other admins) tag the documents "New Faculty" as we prepare for a new year (and throughout the year) and since Boards are public, the new faculty see the Board in their Delve and they can see all the documents they may need. As we add new documents, they automatically appear in the list the next time the teacher clicks on New Faculty. From Delve, they can open or email the document .... or jump into a Yammer discussion on the document.

So... if you're working with a group of people and want to keep disparate documents located in a variety of locations (Course Site, my OneDrive, your OneDrive, the general Faculty Site, etc) just create a Board and tag each document with the Board's name. When you're done, just click Remove From Favorite and the Board disappears.
