As the editor of SchoolArts, I would like to invite you to share your ideas and bring positive attention to your art program by getting published in our magazine. Your principal, fellow teachers, students, and parents will all take notice when you are published. It is one of the best advocacy tools I know.
Since I am currently planning all next year's issues, I can offer some possibilities for getting published fairly soon. I am always in need of articles for middle and high school and I always need ClipCards for every level. ClipCards are very short, no more than 200 words, and they only need one image to accompany them. They are good for lessons that only take one or two class sessions. They follow the following outline: The Art Problem, Objectives, Materials, Motivation, Procedures, and Assessment.
Some themes for next year I know will be challenging are The Built Environment and Green Design, so I know I definitely need articles for both. In general, though, you don't need to think about themes too much. Your enthusiasm for a lesson should be your guide.
In our magazine we have both online and print articles. Online articles would be great for all of you who teach overseas since you can access them on the Internet. They are archived on our website and you can save a digital copy as well. If you are not familiar with SchoolArts, you can look at us online at www.schoolartsonline.com
Please let me know if you have any questions. And thanks!
