As regular readers know, I write a popular teacher advice column for Education Week Teacher. Readers send-in questions, and then I invite guests to contribution 300 or 400 word responses and also print shorter reader comments.
I know a lot of educators and, in fact, have over 150 guest responses already — with more on the way — for the forty questions I plan on tackling this school year.
However, there is a far greater number of talented educators who I do not know.
If you are an experienced educator and feel that you can write well, I’d love to invite you to write a 300 word response to one of the upcoming questions.
You can leave a comment on this post (I’ll keep it private and not publish it) or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org saying:
* Your name, what you teach, where you teach, and for how you’ve taught
* What areas of education where you think you are particularly qualified to give advice (ed tech, math, classroom management, etc.)
Two-to-four sentences would be sufficient.
Then, I’d send you a question or questions to choose from in those areas and invite you to write a three hundred word response to it. There’s probably a ninety-five percent chance of me publishing it.
I look forward to hearing from you.
