Teacher-Writers Wanted: Collaborative Curriculum Writing Opportunities
Teachers interested in curriculum writing are encouraged to apply to participate in Minnesota course development projects. Through the Minnesota Partnership for Collaborative Curriculum (MPCC), school districts are collaborating to create and share digital courses and content. The teacher-writer application process is open to ALL interested Minnesota teachers and staff.
Teacher-writers indicate their preference for grade level and subject area. If selected, writers join a team of colleagues from other Minnesota districts working under the guidance of an expert facilitator in a sponsoring district. Teacher-writers work on their own time and are paid through an individual contract with MPCC. All materials created are owned by the Partnership.

What is the Minnesota Partnership for Collaborative Curriculum?
A grassroots initiative among school districts to create comprehensive open education resources (OER) through the Minnesota Partnership for Collaborative Curriculum has been in existence for the past two years. Over 200 districts have committed to fund the initiative by contributing approximately one dollar per ADM. The goal is to create course work in a digital format in the four core subject areas for grades 3-12. At the conclusion of the development project, all materials will be shared publicly under a creative commons license.
The benefits to all districts include:
