Sorry am posting as comment since I can't find an email id for you.

I wanted to reach out today to share this great teacher resource with you - LessonWriter, a FREE web service that helps teachers quickly adapt their own lesson to create detailed teacher lesson plans in just minutes.

A short video introduction to how LessonWriter works is available at Do take a look and tell us what you think. LessonWriter was created by teachers and is directly informed by teacher feedback.

Should you (or even one of your student teachers that you nominate) be interested in the premium package (an upgraded, paid service – the basic level is free) I will be happy to provide you with a free subscription to that as well.
