Writing for Agora
Writing for Agora gives you a chance to share your expertise and ideas with history teachers and contribute to the history teaching community. Agora invites submissions that relate to history teaching in any way, from classroom-ready activities to deep curriculum discussions and insights into history teaching as a discipline.

Agora content is aimed at practising history teachers and educators. Articles range in tone from formal and academic style to conversational. Writers are expected to demonstrate a fair-minded approach when discussing the work of others, and submissions should be both courteous and academically rigorous.
Please send submissions to the Agora editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. By submitting a contribution to Agora, you agree to the terms of the author agreement. Please include a signed copy of the agreement with your submission.
Each issue of Agora focuses on a specific theme. Articles that don’t relate to the theme are also welcome, although they may be held over for an appropriate issue.
