Editing for the Educational Market

This covers: 

  • reading level assessment and adjustment
  • 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
