LISNews received the following letter from the Carnegie Corporation of New York; please read and take part (if you wish…):
I am writing from Carnegie Corporation of New York, where we’ve created a web photo project together with dozens of education nonprofits to support national Teacher Appreciation Week, which starts Monday. I’m hoping you’ll help spread the word to people at schools (which could, if public, have the opportunity to win $3500), and anyone interested in inspired learning and education, and/or photography…
“Picture This!” aims to do just that. Using Carnegie’s “umbrella”
position—supporting multiple organizations, ranging from universities, to the NEA, the National Council on Teacher Quality, Public Impact, Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, and more—we’ve created a far-reaching collaboration to call on students, parents, teachers, administrators, and anyone who’s witnessed great teaching, to upload pictures to our photo-sharing site Great Teaching that “visually” answer one of these questions:
When I picture great teaching I see ________.
When my teaching is inspired I ________.
My teacher inspires me when ________.
Plus, the person who submits the most inspiring photo (pic and description) can win $3500 for a K-12 public school of his or her choice! The site is live, so please take a look (and upload a photo!). Thanks for your help spreading the word. Finally, the project also integrates with Instagram through the hashtag #GreatTeaching.
