Hello! We’re so glad that you’ve made your way to the All Students, All Standards website: a home for stories, photos, and videos about the ways in which teachers just like you are using the Common Core State Standards or the Next Generation Science Standards to make a difference in the lives of students every day!
Because these standards inherently help us to increase both equity and rigor, we believe they are a vital foundation to 21st century classrooms. By shifting our practice to help students master high academic standards, we are giving them the opportunity to pursue the futures they want for themselves.
We want to help teachers communicate the great standards-driven work they and their students are doing around the country. We’re confident that when classroom practitioners share their experiences, they can profoundly impact the practice of other teachers and learning of students far beyond their own classrooms.
We can’t wait for you to share your story!
All Students, All Standards Submission Guidelines
How to send us your work: We accept submissions only through our Google Form. If you have any questions or encounter technical difficulties, please contact us.
Response Time: We will make every effort to respond to your submission within a week.
Length: We’d like some variety in blog length and are looking for posts from 250-750 words.
Content: We tend to favor teacher writing that makes a strong connection between specific narratives from or about the classroom and a broader opinion or insight about the Kentucky Core Academic Standards. To save your time and ours, please browse the blogs before submission. That doesn’t mean we won’t consider something outside our preferences; don’t hesitate to surprise us by breaking the mold!
Style: We prefer a conversational tone, and jargon-free language that is inclusive of a broad audience. When you can, it’s best to vary sentence structure and employ active verbs.
Revising and Editing: We are deeply interested in helping teachers grow through a collaborative writing and feedback process. If we feel like your work shows potential but doesn’t quite meet our content or style guidelines, we’d love to support you in developing your work before publication. We understand that some teachers may not be interested in the process, in which case, we may not be able to publish your work, but we’d still like to support you in finding the best place to publish it.
Thanks for your interest in All Students, All Standards! Please contact us if you have questions!
