Did you share an exciting practice that has worked in or for rural schools and communities? If yes, please consider translating your presentation into a Promising Practice submission for The Rural Educator
Promising Practices highlight effective “boots-on-the-ground” practices with short, easy-to-read, engaging articles that tell stories of effective and emerging practices. Promising Practices should describe the rural educational setting, the practice, and its outcomes. They are generally 5-7 pages in length (approximately 3000 words), and can include photographs, illustrations, or work samples. Importantly, provide evidence that the practice shows promise and include enough detail so that journal readers can understand and consider implementing the practice in their rural setting. Also, check out this recent Promising Practice, "Rural School District Leadership and Governance: Eating Your Veggies to Stay on the Balcony,"
by Wargo and colleagues. (This article was inspired by their recent conference presentation!) Visit the journal's website
