I am now splitting my time between content mapping a Primary course for Pearson and writing revised Primary test material, again for Pearson. On Monday I’m meeting my contacts at this publisher to plan my IATEFL workshop on how we have gone about producing can do descriptors for Pearson’s YL syllabus. Interesting times and I am enjoying it.
This week I have been mainly content editing a Primary course that is being versioned for use in Egypt. It is fascinating what can and can’t be considered culturally acceptable. Example: playing cards shouldn’t feature as this could be considered to allude to gambling. I’m due to finish the content edit this week, which is great as I have a new project writing some Primary tests just starting up.
It’s been a busy week content editing a Primary course to produce a new version of an existing course for Egypt. It was a steep learning curve, but once I got into it I really enjoyed it and I think the pupils will too as the team has really revamped the stories. I’m spending some time this weekend catching up on the content mapping that is ongoing.
