    Hi everyone,

    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.

    The last 'Subject Genius' blog was written over a month ago. I can only guess that they gave up on them because no one was reading them

    Not quite! They sometimes take a while to get published - I uploaded one at the start of December that hasn't been published, for example, and I've another one that's nearly finished, plus a list of topics of ones I'm planning.

    The interesting thing for me is that there are only two of us who've written more than one!

    How do we go about signing up for this then? Could write a load about Computer Science.

    You could, but I don't think it's designed to be a textbook. All of the articles I've written have been in response to an incident or conversation that I've had - e.g. addressing misconceptions, where evidence contradicts current practice, or where colleagues commonly demonstrate the same gaps in their knowledge.
