Do you have a tip to share with other teachers related to teaching writing or classroom management/organization? Help teachers around the nation by submitting a video with your tip. If we select your video for use in our future professional development sessions, we will send you a $25 check! Better yet, submit as many videos as you like.

Together, we CAN improve writing in elementary schools.

Here are the things we are looking for:

•    A tip related to teaching writing or classroom management/organization.
•    Videos shot in a real elementary classroom, possibly demonstrating with visuals.
•    Videos 1 minute or less in length (this is equivalent to 120 words).
•    In the video: state your name, grade level (or position), and your idea. Please be clear and concise.  

**Videos cannot include students.  

No idea is too small! Teachers love hearing little tips about things such as getting students attention, storing classroom materials, keeping students quiet during writing time, or ways to help students remember and apply skills related to writing.

Email your video to Emily@WriteStepsWriting.com. Include the topic you chose in the subject line and please provide your full name and mailing address in the message so that we know where to mail the check if your video is selected.

Please orient your phone or tablet to film horizontally with the camera eye at the top and home button (for iPads and iPhones) on the right.

Here are some tips for emailing the video if you have any issues.
Alternately, if you have a Dropbox account, you can upload your video there and email a link. https://www.dropbox.com/features/links
