For Educators

Big Class is passionate about helping teachers get their students excited about writing. Below, find some resources for bringing Big Class programming to your school, and ideas for writing in your classroom.

Big Class-in-Residence brings a dedicated Big Class staff member into your school to cultivate writing and publishing happenings, including school newspapers, book-making clubs, grade-level collaborations, and more.

The Pizza Poetry Project brings poets into your classroom to prepare your students for Pizza Poetry or Pothole Poetry. Click here to apply to bring a poet to your classroom.

Unfathomable City Curriculum: Big Class educators created the innovative project-based writing and social studies curriculum for Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas which can be found here.

Big Class staff is always excited to connect with educators passionate about writing and creativity, and we are available to visit your school and deliver presentations on our resources. Reach out to In-School Program Manager Ashley Teamer for more information.
