The worksheet eternal


Here is a simple set of 10 rules for making good-quality handouts, written by none other than John Hughes: A checklist for writing ELT worksheets. It’s a teaser for his book about materials writing, so is hardly meant to be comprehensive. I would add, for instance, branding in the header (school or personal), and of course extra links for the most ambitious learners (with QR codes for ease of use). And perhaps something for rule No.10, about the lesson flow. And then about this special ‘zing’ the best worksheets have which helps them survive through time.
