Suggestions for Aspiring Teacher-Writers

Bill Ferriter at The Tempered Radical offers advice for teachers who are "trying to figure out how to unleash their inner-author." He suggests these steps for "getting your foot in the educational publishing door": 1) Start a blog. 2) Tweet your blog content. 3) Write a book proposal. 4) WAIT.

It worked for Ferriter, who co-authored the award-winning book Building a Professional Learning Community at Work.
