Educators: Would You Like to Contribute to This Blog?

By Larry Ferlazzo — January 02, 2020 1 min read

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 40 questions I plan on tackling next school year (which will happen to be the 10th anniversary of this blog).

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

If you are are currently working as an educator in a K-12 school, and feel that you can write well, I’d love to invite you to write a 300- to 400-word response to one of those upcoming questions.

If you’re interested, please send me an email at lferlazzo@epe.org saying:

* Your name, what you teach, where you teach, and for how long you’ve taught

* The 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 response to it by June 15. I’ve done this activity for the past six years and have published all 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 Feb. 1, or you need to be one of the first 30 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.
