Call for writers

Would you be willing to write for the spring issue of Shaping the Future? I’m especially interested in how to wrap the biblical Christian worldview into how and what you teach. This could be a feature article (1,500–2,000 words) or a regular article (1,000–1,200 words) with a deadline around Valentine’s Day. Want to query a topic or get more details? Email ed.grube@lea.org. Please include your current grade level experience.
