Ever wished you could create classroom resources that look as if they were professionally written?
This staff tutorial teaches the skills and techniques required to create colourful, professional looking resources quickly. If you'd like to sell resources yourself or simply improve your own classroom resources this download is a great place to start.
Today’s pupils live in a world where they are surrounded by colourful, interactive content which is literally at their fingertips. It should come as no surprise then that when presented with a white worksheet covered with black text and a couple of Googled graphics many pupils instinctively respond negatively. A modern teacher has a responsibility to improve their own skills in order to create engaging resources.
Note that this version of the tutorial contains instructions to create resources using Serif PagePlus, a very popular desktop publishing application. PagePlus is used in many schools due to its fun interface, ease of use and fantastic facilities. I highly recommend it to colleagues when delivering training on this topic.
This staff tutorial could possibly be used with older students to teach the skills required to write professional looking reports.
