Discovery Education

Discover edit

Discovery have a dedicated team that work their way through their back catalogue of programming to find clips that can be used in UK schools to help teach curriculum subjects to primary and secondary students. The online packages that a school can subscribe to are extensively supported by written material for the class teacher – lesson plans, activities, guides, debates and questions to inspire learning in conjunction with the online video clips.

My job is to edit the supporting documents so that they are accurate, grammatically correct, consistently styled and presented and produced according to a comprehensive style guide. You can find a reference to support my contribution to Discovery here.
