    Can anyone recommend good software or templates for writing schemes of work? I'm looking to include detailed lesson plans and resources.

    I have never understood why anyone includes detailed lesson plans in a scheme of work.

    No two teachers teach in the same way. In my opinion, a scheme of work should contain a detailed list of what is to be covered throughout the school year. I usually include end-of-unit assessments which all teachers use to have a consistent measure of attainment. The individual teacher can decide how they deliver the learning. I have found that I never teach the same thing the same way twice. I always adapt to the class in front of me.

    I suppose it depends on the school, I have worked at schools that require SOWs to have explicit lesson plans, and others that just want to know what is being learned. However, I always, as moscowbore says, include standardised end of topic tests. That being said I am currently rewriting my current scheme to fit in with my current school's "knowledge rich" curriculum.

    It is funny how some schools use the term "knowledge rich" but actually mean information rich...
