Last month we launched this blog, Education Innovating, where you’ll find us following and reporting how folks are innovating to get beyond ‘traditional school’ across the United States.
In its first weeks our readers have learned from guest bloggers Lynn Nordgren, president of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers, and Paul Hill at the Center for Reinventing Public Education. We’ve also discussed the origins of teacher layoffs, and wondered whether the institution of adolescence isn’t part of the cause of teen turmoil.
This week we’ll be discussing teacher professional partnerships, an arrangement in which formally organized groups of teachers accept collegially the responsibility for the school’s success.
We invite your comments on this blog, and are looking forward to learning from you!
To encourage you to share your ideas and spread the word about our blog we’re offering three of our readers a free copy of Disrupting Class autographed by co-author and E|E partner Curtis W. Johnson.
To be eligible to win, participate this week:
- Either leave a comment anywhere on the blog telling us your insights about a particular innovation or idea.
- Or, link to us on Facebook or Twitter, either sharing a post or mentioning the giveaway. Then leave a comment at the blog post announcing this contest letting us know where you mentioned us.
Giveaway ends Sunday July 18th at 8 p.m. PST. Winners chosen by Random.org.
