Our goal at TESOL Planner is to create a place where teachers can access quality resources. In order to maintain the integrity of our content, please carefully read through this section when preparing your submission. Paying attention to the details will help improve your chances of your submission being chosen for publication.
TESOL Planner is looking for lessons, activity ideas, handouts, student packs, slides, articles on current topics, and other things relevant to language education. Whatever it is that you submit, we will be looking to see if submitted material is:
1. Relevant: Is the resource relevant for teachers? Is the resource relevant for students?
2. Engaging/Interesting/Useful: Is the resource engaging, interesting, or useful for students?
3. Carefully formatted: At TESOL Planner, we pay attention to detail. If your resource includes a handout or another type of student material, it needs to be carefully and thoughtfully put together to make it visually clear and engaging.
4. Original: All material submitted to and published on TESOL Planner must be original and free of copyright. You cannot submit pages from a textbook or other resources downloaded from other websites. This also includes any media (images, audio, or videos) used on handouts or slides. The best way to assure that all images are free of copyright is by using a CC0 licensed stock photo website such as pixabay.com or pexels.com.
Anything you submit will need an accompanying article. This will vary a bit depending on what you’re submitting. For example, if you’re submitting an article on a current topic in the field, then that’s all you need. However, if you’re planning to submit a handout, you still must write and submit an article that describes the resource and explains how to use it. You can also include how it went in your class and other relevant information.

If your resource is chosen for publication, you will receive an email detailing the steps you will need to follow to write your post on TESOL Planner. Please note that you may receive editorial comments for revision before publication.
If your resource is rejected, we will send you an email letting you know. We do encourage you to resubmit other resources in the future even if you receive a rejection for one.
