Hi, Background: I've posted in these forums before, getting ideas for motivating students to learn a variety of school subjects. I'm compiling a set of "sales pitches" that teachers can use. The sales pitches' purpose is to motivate students to really make an effort to learn the material, or at least to not hate the schoolwork so much. Ideally, students will keep trying when the assignments get tedious or difficult, rather than doing the minimum effort or giving up entirely. I want to somehow present, to as many teachers as possible in America, the results of my work. Hopefully, some of those teachers will then use my material in the classroom. My question: Should I contact the state Departments of Education, the local school districts, or the teachers individually? I need to not step on any bureaucrat's toes or violate protocol. But I also want to contact the people who are most likely to make this happen. Contacting just the state governments would be easiest. But if they can't be counted on, I'd rather do the extra work of contacting people locally. I've actually considered applying for a private foundation grant to do this work, but I can't count on that money. Many thanks for reading this and for any guidance. Have a great summer!
