EMCdownload has just celebrated its second birthday. To mark the occasion, we’re offering teachers the opportunity to try out a sample from a download publication for free.
EMCdownload is a pay per download site that allows teachers instant access to a selection of our print publications, single units from some of our most popular resources, and new materials written specifically for the site. Pricing is set to reflect the budgets of individual teachers and hard-pressed English departments.
We’re delighted that EMCdownload has proved so popular. While departments have clearly been pleased to get instant access to some of our more substantial publications such as The Great Gatsby or The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, individual teachers have been taking advantage of the single and clustered units from publications such as Language Works and Studying Narrative. Most resources on EMCdownload are offered in both print and screen-friendly versions – something teachers tell us has been a bit of a godsend in these days of photocopying austerity!
Over the two years, there have been some real winners. It’s perhaps no surprise that 10 New Approaches to Of Mice and Men, EMC Approaches to Teaching GCSE Non-fiction and Language Frameworks head the bestseller lists, but it’s also great to see that Scribble Away and Days Like These – two angles on creative writing – have proved so popular. It’s good to think of all that journaling, experimenting and creating going on in KS3 and GCSE classrooms!
We’re continuing to add to the EMCdownload list both by creating PDF versions of our most popular print publications and by writing new resources for the site. Most recently we’ve added Units from the Poetry Pack – Developing critical skills 14-19 and, for A Level Language, Language Frameworks – Gender. We’re always keen to get your thoughts on what we should publish, in whatever format, but we’d particularly like to know your thoughts on what would lend itself to PDF and Video PDF download.
We’d love you to try out the site. Go to www.emcdownload.co.uk, login (or register if you have not done so already), browse the site, add the free taster version of The Hunger Games EMC Study Guide to your basket, then check out. You’ll by-pass the payment stage and be taken straight to ‘My downloads’ from where you can download your taster publication.
