Writing teachers can turn their favorite teaching tricks into gold in a contest aimed at gathering best practices for teaching writing in the classroom. The contest rewards the best ideas submitted by teachers as judged by their peers. Now through January 1, 2009, teachers who submit tips at http://contest.thewritingteacher.org and garner at least ten votes will win a copy of any book in the LearningExpress English Language Arts series. The top eight finalists will win a full classroom set of any single title in the series and two winners who receive the most votes will each win a Flip Video camera.
This is a great opportunity for you as writing experts to share your strategies and get free resources and a chance at a really cool prize.
This program is hosted by Mitchell Weisburgh, a WeAreTeachers community member and works with educators and education companies to promote literacy and writing practices.
