I’ve just published my annual invitation to readers to contribute responses to questions at my Education Week Teacher column.
Unlike what I usually do, I’ll just republish here what appears there:
As you know, this blog is set-up so readers send-in questions to me, and then I invite guests to contribution 300 or 400 word responses, as well as printing shorter reader comments.
I know a lot of educators and, in fact, have already begun to arrange guest responses for the forty questions I plan on tackling next school year.
However, there are 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 those upcoming questions.
If you’re interested, please 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’ll send you a question or questions to choose from in those areas and invite you to write a three hundred word response to it by July 15th. I’ve done this activity for the past three years, and and have published all of the contributions I received as a result of my invitation (though I can’t offer a guarantee that I’ll publish what you write).
I would need to hear from you by May 15th or you need to be one of the first thirty educators responding to this request – whichever comes first.
Unfortunately, I can’t offer any financial compensation to contributors.
I look forward to hearing from you.
