Write for The Learning Professional

Beginning with the February 2017 issue, the journal of Learning Forward will be known as The Learning Professional. We will continue to produce several stories around a topic, focus, or theme. However, we have added space to run a variety of stories in each issue that are non-thematic. Now, we welcome your submissions on all professional learning topics at any time! Please see manuscript deadline dates below for upcoming issues. If you need to, please familiarize yourself with our Writers Guidelines.


Theme: The intersection of curriculum and professional learning
Manuscript deadline: February 15
Issue: August 2018

Recent evidence indicates that effective and educative curriculum materials have a critical impact on student outcomes. This issue of the magazine will explore how  educators strengthen their capacity to reach all students by building strong connections between standards-based professional learning and high-quality curriculum materials. Potential topics for manuscripts submitted for this issue include:  

  • How do you institutionalize a coherent and aligned instructional framework?
  • How have new research and resources, including OER, influenced practice in your organization?
  • How do professional learning and curriculum implementation intersect in your PLCs?
  • How do teachers learn deeply and effectively to adapt instructional materials and curriculum to meet the needs of all students?
  • What are the outcomes for students when educators have the knowledge and skills to fully implement curriculum resources?

Learning Forward prefers to receive articles electronically. Send inquiries or manuscripts to Christy Colclasure at christy.colclasure@learningforward.org.
