The Source will release a special edition issue in the summer of 2015 recognizing the Council of Chief State School Officers’ 2015 State Teachers of the Year.
This special edition issue will include various viewpoints and voices of the State Teacher of the Year recipients so readers can integrate those lessons into effective use within their educational communities. Specifically, we are looking for pieces that address one or more of the following:
- what, or who, inspired you to become a teacher;
- what lessons you learned from your former teachers and/or current colleagues;
- what you think makes you an effective teacher;
- what makes the subject you teach important and how do you translate that to students;
- what resources could improve learning within and outside of schools;
- what advice to you have for teachers and school administrators;
- what do you see for the future of teaching – what will (or has to) change?
The Source publishes articles on educational strategies and practices supporting educational quality. Articles should contain useful information and techniques for practitioners serving students Pre-K through grade 12. Articles based on original research also are welcome.
Articles are now being accepted for this special edition issue. Submissions should be between 800-1200 words and submitted electronically in Microsoft Word® using the online submission form (below) by May 25, 2015. View The Source editorial guidelines below.
