Green Teacher magazine is intended to help teachers, parents and other educators promote environmental and global awareness among young people from kindergarten through senior high school. Articles range from perspective pieces (e.g., the role of environmental education or global education in the curriculum) to practical classroom-ready activities. Most articles are written by teachers or other educators working in the fields of environmental or global education, but we occasionally publish pieces by freelance writers and we welcome such contributions.
Green Teacher is a non-profit organization, and those who write for the magazine do so on an unpaid, volunteer basis. Writers of articles receive five copies of the issue in which their article appears and a one-year subscription to the magazine.
Please send a selection of 8-10 hi-res photographs or drawings to illustrate your article. Please note that digital photos require a minimum resolution of 300 pixels per inch (dpi) for printing. For each photo, please provide a caption that describes the subject and/or action in the picture. Similarly, provide the name(s) of the photographer(s) so that credit can be given.

If citing a journal or periodical, provide the titles of both the journal and the article, as well as the date, volume, issue and page numbers. If citing material found on a website, please provide the names of the sponsoring organization and the author (if known), the title of the article, the complete website address, and the date that you accessed the information.

The aim is to give all of the information that interested readers will need to obtain their own copies of the resources.
