So I'm a teacher. You may know that based on the fact that I talk about it here a lot. Well, recent I started to flip my class and discovered that I'm only one of five people who is flipping in English in the US.
Now I'm starting to explore presenting at conferences, but I also want to start getting published in education journals and websites. How do I go about that? Do I write something first then send it or do I ask them before I write it so I can tailor it to their specifications?
I currently blog about my experience and it's been fairly well received in the flipping community, mostly because no one else is doing what I'm doing, much less writing about it. I don't really care about the money side of things; I just want to get the information out there, ideally quickly.
I also know that I'm a strong writer with a USP. I just don't know how to get my foot in the door. Help?!
