We welcome your guest posts. In fact, if you’re the right guest poster, we don’t just welcome them, we crave them. Please read our guest-author guidelines.
Why Write for Science and Literacy?
- The Joy of Sharing – If you’ve had a life-changing experience in your classroom or overcome an enormous obstacle, sharing your knowledge could change the lives of thousands of teachers who face the same problem.
- Exposure – For a beginning teaching blogger, building a readership is a challenge. It’s tough when no one knows who you are. Writing for us will allow you to reach thousands of new readers and gain some visibility in the blogosphere.
- Links/Traffic – When you contribute an article, you’ll receive credit and a byline with a link to your blog.
- We only accept articles from real teachers or people with experience in teaching, so photos or worksheets from your work are welcome. We will be happy to share them on our website.
- Aim for 1500-3000 words articles. Submit as an attached Google Doc or Word.doc.
- Include an author bio with your guest post as the last paragraph. You can and should have 2-4 links to your books, website, blog, social media, or wherever readers can find you and connect with you.
- Please provide an original post. If you want to take a great post you’ve written and tweak it a bit to be just right for our readership, that’s perfectly fine.
- We will delete any links to websites that promote products or services and that aren’t your personal website or blog.
- We’d be pleased to add you to our editorial office page as a guest or regular editor.
Our submission process is very short and simple. Here is what you need to do:
Step 1: Come up with few ideas
Before you come up with any ideas, make sure to take a look at the content we share on our blog and make sure we haven’t covered it before. The content of your articles needs to correspond with some of the categories that we’ve listed above.
Step 2: Pitch your ideas
Once you’ve got an idea ready to submit, send us a short pitch along with a brief outline of your experience and links to related content. All ideas and subjects explored within your piece must be original.
We will review your ideas for suitability and get back to you as soon as we can with a response. If we decline your content pitch, please feel free to come up with new ideas or pitch your existing ideas elsewhere.
Step 3: Write
If we like what we see and accept your pitch, go ahead and write it up.
Once you’re done writing the article, please send it to us in the following formats: Google Docs or Word. If you would like to submit high-resolution images with your article, make sure they are optimized for the web (either JPG or PNG will do) and ZIP them together in a single file.
If you’re interested in writing but aren’t sure about a topic, here are some suggestions we’re particularly interested in:
- Family tree ideas for school project
- Classroom uses for document camera
- Classroom management styles
- Cultural competence in education
- Multiple intelligence in the classroom
- Should parents help with homework
- Review games for the classroom
We reserve the right to make changes to your post so that it’s a better fit for our blog and audience. We usually don’t change much, if anything. We can bet you we will find at least one or two copy errors that need fixing.
