How LessonWriter Began Writing Lessons
LessonWriter was built by teachers, for teachers, with one idea in mind: make it easier to teach better. One teacher created an application to perform repetitive tasks with new materials, such as formatting worksheets and creating flashcards from a newspaper article.
Colleagues noticed and added their own ideas and applications, and as the collection grew, another teacher suggested they all be brought together in a single website. LessonWriter was born and continues to grow with the support of teachers, administrators, and all life-long learners.
What Does LessonWriter Do?
LessonWriter.com automatically creates print, web, and mobile-ready lessons to promote comprehension in any subject: an article on cell structure for biology class, a primary source document in history, a short story, or this very moment’s headline news.
All you do is copy and paste the link to the article in LessonWriter.com, and a lesson based on that text is made, including vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, roots & stems, comprehension tasks, and graphic organization. No matter the subject, LessonWriter makes a lesson to help advance students’ understanding.
Want more input in making the lesson? No worries: we have three options for customization:
- Express: We handle all the details, and you can instantly download or print your lesson.
- Standard: We take care of language support (for example, vocabulary and grammar), but you write your own comprehension questions.
- Detailed: You have a hand in every part of the process. From roots and stems, pronunciation, to graphic organizers and differentiated instruction.
