« Response: A Good Reading Lesson Doesn't 'Put Standards Before Students' | Main | How Can We Help Teachers Adapt to Both Tech & Common Core? »

Would You Like To Contribute To This Ed Week Teacher Blog?


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 scores of committed responses already -- with more on the way -- for the forty questions I plan on tackling during the next (2015-16) school year.

However, there are a far greater number of talented educators who I do not know.

If you are an experienced K-12 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.  Unfortunately, I can't offer any payment, but published responses will certainly receive many views.

If you're interested, please send me an email - no later than May 1st - at [email protected] saying:

* Your name, what you teach, where you teach, and for how long 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.

May 1st is the theoretical deadline, but it's really the first thirty educators to respond prior to May 1st -- whichever comes first.

Then, sometime prior to June 1st, 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 -- with an August 1st deadline. There's probably a ninety-five percent chance of me publishing it.  I did this activity last year, and published all of the contributions I received as a result of my invitation.

I look forward to hearing from you.
