The VIVA Teachers Project strives to gather teachers’ ideas on specific issues in locations around the country. Its website also features blog posts by teachers on various topics. Take a look at the posts on teacher voice itself — it’s well worth seeing thoughtful teachers struggle with how to best use their voice to inform the public, and how to negotiate their differences as well s their common values. And read VIVA founder Elizabeth Evans’ piece on visiting schools and marveling at the great ones.
If you teach in a community where it’s active, you’ll find VIVA a great teacher voice forum. It’s easy to lend them yours.
