Extra considerations when editing educational material

Editors who develop school materials also adjust manuscripts to address these considerations:

  • learning outcomes (defined by Ministry of Education)
  • reading level of target user
  • copy fitting (and fitting content to class time)
  • Bloom’s taxonomy and deciphering ministry curriculum documents
  • cognitive development theories
  • multiple intelligences and differentiated instruction
  • assessment models
  • trends in educational theory
