Teachit's editorial policy
Our publishing model: For teachers, by teachers
Our teacher-created resources are all written by experienced classroom teachers who generously share their lesson ideas and worksheets to help and support fellow educators. Our lesson resources are suitable for delivering the primary and secondary English National Curriculum, from the EYFS to KS1-KS5, but are also relevant for a range of international curricular too.
Along with worksheets and lesson activities, games and quizzes, we also publish comprehensive teaching packs (a scheme of learning and a set of lesson plans for a topic, text or skill, along with accompanying resources) and posters, along with CPD articles and thought-leadership webinars for teachers.
We publish new resources every month and are always open to creative collaborations with respected partners and publishers in the education field.
Our content is exam-board agnostic and, where possible, focused on Assessment Objectives as opposed to board-specific criteria. While some resources have been created for a particular specification, our resources cater to as wide an audience as possible and includes a variety of teaching styles and formats.
Our editorial and publishing team is made up of experienced former teachers and leaders who use their classroom and curriculum knowledge to decide what to publish and when. The majority of our resources are written and then shared with us by practising teachers who have created and used them in their own classrooms.
We also commission experts and specialist teacher authors to fill curriculum gaps or to address trending topics in education. Some of our resources are also written by our content team, who use their education knowledge and teaching expertise to consider what teachers will be looking for next.
When considering resources for publication, our editorial team looks at:
- Intent. Who is the resource for? What is the learning objective? What is the learning outcome?
- Context. Does the resource work in a variety of different classroom contexts?
- Format. What format should the resource take to make it most useful?
- Accuracy. Are answers correct? Do puzzles/games work? Are the insrtructions clear and easy to follow for students? Are references (to texts, for example) correct?
- Copyright. Do text extracts or images infringe copyright regulations? Do we need to apply for copyright permissions?
- Originality. Has the resource been published elsewhere? (We only publish original content.)
Our aim is to honour the original resource as much as possible, making changes only where necessary to ensure it functions effectively for a wider audience.
