BY BILL FERRIS

We’re looking for a few brave K-12 teachers to write more feature content for us. These features will show how to accomplish a specific instructional goal by using nontraditional methods (usually some nifty free technology). Please see some of our past features for examples.

Requirements:

  • You must be a practicing K-12 teacher or media specialist.
  • Though Instructify is based out of North Carolina, you needn’t be.
  • If we hire you, we’ll pay you $200 for each feature, upon publication. You’ll also have the opportunity to write shorter application-review articles for $25 each.

    Please send the following to Bill Ferris, editor, at instructify[at]learnnc.org:

    1. A pitch for a feature article you’d like to write. Your pitch should focus on the learning objective you’re trying to achieve first, the technology used to achieve it second. FYI, features must be at least 1,500 words, so make sure your proposal reflects an article of that length.
    2. Two writing samples. Content similar to what we publish on Instructify is preferred, but feel free to send anything that shows off your writing ability. (Note: not poetry)
    3. Your resume.

    I’ll check my email on Monday, May 24 at 8 a.m. If I’ve received your application by then, I’ll consider it. If I haven’t, I won’t. Your interest is much appreciated, and I look forward to working with a few of you very soon.
