Resources and Ideas
This section will operate continuously throughout the year and is designed so that contributors can submit assignments, syllabi, essays or other information that might be of assistance to the field, or are experimental in nature where the author would like feedback or comments. These may be accompanied by questions, reflections about how the assignment worked (or was unsuccessful), and links to a class website can be included. All materials, questions, and comments should be submitted to the editors and may be lightly edited for clarity prior to posting. Submissions will be published at the discretion of the editors and should follow accessibility guidelines.
Material for the Resources and Ideas section will be accepted on a rolling basis. Please allow up to one month for review and posting. If you have questions about submissions for this section, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. See the Guidelines for Authors page for more information and instructions for how to submit a resource or idea.
