    Hi all,

    Some of you may already be aware that we have created a new dedicated hub for teachers to write about the subject they teach and how they go about teaching it.

    Subject Genius was launched in July and aims to bring together some of the best subject specialist writers around. The blogs are produced by teachers, for teachers and will explore the trickiest subjects to teach, the peskiest issues in the curriculum and the most enjoyable ways to approach different parts of your discipline.

    A number of teachers have already produced some interesting posts:

    https://www.tes.co.uk/news/blog/introducing-year-7s-delights-poetry

    https://www.tes.co.uk/news/blog/time-travel-possible-teaching-theory-relativity



    All we ask is that you contribute a blog post at least once a month, on the subject that you teach, where you can provide insights and inspiration to help your colleagues working in the same area in other schools around the country, and the world. If you're an uploader to TES resources, then this would likely drive downloads too.

    We would like to build up a network of bloggers (Subject Geniuses) covering every subject on the curriculum.

    If you're interested in becoming a regular Subject Genius, then please let me know by sending me a private message with your contact details including your email address.

    Thank you.
     
  2. Good morning!

    I qualified as a teacher of art and design this year but did not secure a teaching post and so currently work as a cover supervisor attached to the art department. Would someone like myself be able to make valuable contributions to this?

    Hi @loramarsden,

    Sorry for the delay in responding to your post. At the moment, the aim of the series is for working teachers or recently retired ones to write for the blog.

    Hi

    I am an Art teacher and would be interested in writing a blog for this. I was previously a Head of Department and am now an assistant lead practitioner working on a whole school level.

    I would be really interested in taking part.

    Hi,
    I am an Art teacher currently working in Indonesia. I would love to share some of my experiences as an International teacher and as a Secondary teacher as a whole.

    Let me know if this is also what you are looking for?

    Thanks

    I would love to do this. I am a year 2/3 teacher and Arts Coordinator for our federation. I have a first class BEd with specialism in Art and Design. I am very interested in creative planning and using learning in art to support cross curricular work.
