Teachers - Inspire & WIN!

Ten years ago Vicki Cobb took a group blog INK (Interesting Nonfiction for Kids)  and turned it into an organization dedicated to providing quality nonfiction in the classroom - iNK Think Tank.  There are so many of us it is hard to keep count, but if it is nonfiction, it was likely written by an iNKEr.

My favorite aspect of iNK is the NONFICTION MINUTE, the daily posting of a short, fascinating true story that is sure to get students buzzing. You can learn about the Montgomery bus boycott, Morris code, how to make a 3-D image, or how to take an elephant's temperature. That last one, I wrote. Some of the best writing in children's lit can be found in 400 words or less for free.

To celebrate our tenth anniversary we are inviting you to INSPIRE US!.  Have your students brainstorm what they'd like to read about. Send us your top 3 ideas to:

If one of our award-winning writers chooses your idea, YOU WIN!!! a 20 minute virtual classroom visit with the author. (arrangements made between teacher and author). The luckiest classroom may win 3 author visits!  

Deadline for all submissions is FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2019.

Good luck!!
