Authoring

From time to time, I also undertake authoring work. This may entail reviewing synopses, editing/proof-reading final manuscripts, advising about content, style, layout and producing exemplars, creating online and interactive resources with accompanying teacher notes or critiquing and revising existing material. All assignments to date have proved to be interesting and challenging in their own way, due to their variety, the extent and depth of resources to be explored, in addition to the degree of creativity and ICT competencies that have been required.

  • I'm very impressed with the lesson plan you prepared for the Global Climates unit. I can see that you have put in a great deal of work. You've come up with a great range of activities, and the resources you've suggested are all things we can create in-house. I'm going to pass on the lesson plan samples to the Head of Content, Natasha Stillwell, and we will be discussing the next steps for production and writing of the teaching resources. I will be in touch again when I have further information. ...Thanks again for all your work on this.Lucy DouglasTwig World

  • I hope you don’t mind me emailing you, but as you are aware we recently ran some online secondary subject forums regarding the GCSE reforms – I believe that you were involved in the geography forum. Being one of the most active within the geography forums, we’d like to sound you out on your interest in taking on the geography report-writing task.Verity ArchSchoolzoon

  • I hope the Headteachers at Hempsted C of E Primary are suitably appreciative of the great resource you’ve made about their school. I’ve shown it to my colleagues and we all thought it was a really well-thought-out, engaging and varied piece of work. … I’m not surprised it’s taken a long time, and thank you so much for doing it – your additions to the ‘Global issues’ resource are exactly the kind of thing we’re after, as are the ones to ‘Who are the British?’. … Many thanks again for all your hard work. I definitely think it was worth it, and I hope you do too!Lucy PalmerTeachit Citizenship
