Eighty percent of Scholastic Instructor is freelance-written, which means there are plenty of opportunities for writers to help a teacher learn. The pub as been the go-to resource for teachers since 1891: a place for pedagogues to find practical teaching ideas, education news and innovative lesson plans.

Its sister mag, Scholastic Administrator has similar solution-based content but is aimed towards superintendents, chief technology officers and other district-level “cabinet members.” “Our audience is acutely familiar with the many problems facing K-12 education today, and they are eager to learn how to overcome challenges from their peers,” said Administrator‘s executive editor Wayne D’Orio.
