Let’s dive into the world of templates in teaching.
What exactly is a template? In brief, a template is a pre-set form of a document or slideshow that you can easily copy, edit, and adapt to a new creation. For example, you may have a template for a science lab report. It contains the structure you would need for a variety of lab experiments, so each time you plan a new science lab, you just make a copy of the template and edit the fields as needed.
There are all sorts of templates you can use in the classroom: templates for note-taking, comparison charts, puzzle games, spelling practice, writing prompts, reading responses, art projects, and so much more.
A good template is one that is easy to edit, quickly adaptable to a variety of subjects, and simple to use. Because we know how precious time is to teachers everywhere, Planerium has several templates that meet all these criteria.
