Mississippi Achieves aims to show how high academic standards positively affect teaching and learning and is a forum for educators to exchange information and resources. Mississippi Achieves is geared toward a broad audience of educators, parents and others with an interest in public education in Mississippi.
The Mississippi Department of Education welcomes submissions to Mississippi Achieves. If you are a teacher, school/district leader or MDE expert and you have stories or tips to share, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. Related photos and/or videos may be attached.
Tips for blog writing:
- Write clearly in a conversational style.
- Avoid jargon and technical terms.
- Try to simplify complex practices, instead linking to resources that go more in depth.
- Limit submissions to 300-700 words. Breaking a post into sections is helpful (i.e., “five lessons I learned as a literacy coach” or “three tips for integrating technology in your class”).
