The primary aim of the Verlag an der Ruhr is to provide teachers with pupil orientated products, making education more stimulating, exploratory, and rewarding.
Multidisciplinary workshops which deal with a variety of topics include, for example, learning card files or language games to encourage natural, open learning - learning by discovering and experimenting, learning in groups, self organised and with fun.
Our program offers a rescue for teachers in the daily chaos of classroom life and curriculum demands - with clear, easy to use, photocopiable worksheets to motivate pupils and give them more responsibility for their own learning. With their active learning methods, self-checking mechanisms, and lively artwork, these products are accessible to and suitable for all pupils, including those with special educational needs. The motto is 'learning by doing' and exploring with all your senses to take advantage of different ways of learning.
Our learning material is instantly recognisable from the outside by its environmentally friendly cardboard covers, and from inside by its practical, hands-on approach to learning. The products are designed to encourage pupils to take an active role in their own learning, to give the children the opportunity to work independently and to their own level. Not only do they help maintaining the pupils' attention and thus make life easier for the teacher but they introduce pupils to creative learning and give them a clear understanding why certain skills are useful and meaningful in everyday life.
Since all our products are made by teachers for teachers and have all been tried and tested in schools, we can assure you they do not only look good - they work!
The wealth of new, lively and versatile ideas our publications offer to enhance the teacher's work includes Maths, English, Science, Art and PSE and many others. There is a wide range of products for either primary or secondary education available.
“...the photocopiable worksheets, often accompanied by lively illustrations are fun and thought provoking.“ (Times Educational Supplement)
