I’m a semi-regular contributor to Imagine Magazine, a print periodical published by Johns Hopkins University and marketed to Gifted Middle Schoolers. The beauty of this magazine is in how it talks to kids. It takes high-level concepts and delivers them in a straightforward, high-level way, never bringing the topics down in voice or tone.
Rather, Imagine Magazine has accomplished what many cannot when it comes to relating to tweens and teens, it educates without being patronizing.
I’ve written a few articles in my time for them and it’s always a pleasure to contribute to a publication one can so whole-heartedly believe in.
It’s also wonderful to be a working writer and a teacher of writing so that I can share my own writing process with my students. Today, for instance, as my students were finishing up their own revisions on their narrative essays, I got to talk about the number of revisions it took me before I turned in the final draft of this particular article.
I happen to really like this most recent article appearing in the Sep/Oct edition entitled, “Your Slice of the M.I. Pie.” I like it because I think it doesn’t just give a clear description of Howard Gardner’s Multiple-Intelligences, it gives the reasons why one would even seek to find out their slice in the first place.
Anyway, I really love the magazine and I’m always proud to be a part of their issues. Give it a look-sie and let me know if you think as highly of this magazine as I do.
