Welcome to my summer 2023 replay series!
This summer, I’m re-releasing some of my favourite ever podcast episodes that I think are well worth a re-listen.
This episode, which was originally released back in February 2022, was the 10th episode in my (longer than subsequent seasons) first season!
In the episode, I talked about how I came to be a teaching resources writer – from setting up my website (with the help of my very talented stepmum!) to selling over 2500 of my most popular resource (at the last count in 2022, it’s now well over 3000, although TES have stopped giving a sales count of resources so I’m not sure of the exact numbers). I also go into quite a lot of detail about my process when it comes to creating each resource, even down to the reasoning behind my font choices!
This episode came about as I had received a lot of messages and emails about writing resources and setting up a website, so hopefully I answered some of the most burning questions! As always, while it will be most useful for MFL teachers in England, I also believe that teachers in all subjects and Key Stages, and hopefully even from around the world, will find some helpful takeaways here… after all, writing resources is the essence of lesson planning, regardless of where you are and what you’re teaching!
After this episode was released, I ran a CPD workshop on Creating Resources, which is available as an exclusive resource as part of my ‘Buy Everything’ offer https://katelanguages.co.uk/buy-everything/
I wrote a blog post on this a few years ago as well, which also contains links to the photo websites I use in my resources – https://katelanguages.co.uk/a-guide-to-creating-and-selling-teaching-resources/
