FAQs and Resources
I created this page for educators interested in using Enchanted Archives in the classroom and writers interested in submitting library entries for the site. I have relied on the Enchanted Archives as a teaching tool plenty of times in history and writing courses for undergraduates at the university. I am certain that you can make it work in all sorts of classes for all types of students. The key, I think, is to get in touch with me so that we can figure out how we can work together! Send me a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m excited to hear from you! Before we chat, do me a favor and take a look at this short list of FAQs.
If my students write pieces for the library, will you publish them?
The best course of action would be for you and me to chat about a possible assignment. I want to hear your ideas. I also have a “wish list” of things that I would like to add to the site but just can’t find the time to do. It would be better to pick something off of this list than create something that I am already working on behind the scenes and/or don’t need.
Do you accept unsolicited contributions to the site?
This is related to the first FAQ but necessitates a little more explanation. I do not accept unsolicited contributions. I am, however, open to hearing your ideas for pieces! The key is to get in touch with me before you start writing something for the Enchanted Archives library. I have some research and writing tips. The sooner you have those, the better! I also exercise a pretty careful editorial hand, to make sure that each piece fits within the library catalog and strikes the right tone.
Do you have lesson plans or examples for how I might integrate the Enchanted Archives into a class?
Yes! I do! Let’s have a phone call or email exchange to discuss my ideas. You’re working with a specific student body, and my guess is that your program has some strengths. We will want to try to match your students and strengths with a class project that aligns with my short- and long-term goals.
