Independent Teacher is an electronic journal that publishes articles on curriculum and pedagogy, across all grades and disciplines, of particular interest to independent school teachers. It is our hope and intention to promote lively discussion and debate about education that will be useful and interesting to independent school educators. We have assembled an editorial board of 17 teachers from a number of independent schools across the United States who will review all submissions. We hope that you will consider submitting an article to Independent Teacher. At present, we publish two issues each year, November and May. The deadlines for submissions are September 15 and March 15. Subscriptions to Independent Teacher are free, and we will publish an issue by emailing a link to each of our subscribers through which they can read the current issue (and previous issues as well). Of course, Independent Teacher is always available online. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Please email [email protected]. Finally, we hope that you will mention this journal to any of your colleagues who may be interested in writing for or subscribing to Independent Teacher.
