What is the Lesson Share Competition

The Lesson Share competition on onestopenglish started in order to address two very common situations in ELT. Almost all ELT teachers have overheard a colleague in the staffroom desperately searching for a way to teach some particular aspect of English and we have turned to that colleague and said ”I’ve got a great lesson on that”. Almost as many ELT teachers have looked at the material in our course book and wondered “How do I get my great lessons published?”.

The monthly Lesson Share competition gives you the chance to do exactly that—share your great lessons with ELT professionals around the world. Simply complete the competition entry form below and send us your Student Worksheet, your Teacher’s Notes and any other additional material your lesson needs. If your Lesson Share materials win that month’s competition, you will:

  • work with our professional team of ELT editors on your lesson materials

  • have your lesson professionally edited, designed and published

  • share your lessons with 1000s of other teachers, all over the world

  • win a year’s subscription to onestopenglish

Your lesson can be on any skill or language point and can be tailored to young learners, teenagers, or adults. Just make sure to include a complete set of materials, including a student worksheet and teacher's notes, and offer original ideas and suggestions for adapting the materials for different abilities. Be sure to also provide a clear objective for the students and a clear procedure for teachers.
