Wonderopolis is Searching for Teachers, Families to Join the Wonder Team in 2012!

 

The adventure kicks off with a nationwide search for a few families and teachers to join the 'Wonder Team" for a year. Deadline to submit an online application is October 22.


The Wonder Year Adventure is open to the general public and will kick off with a hunt for three families and two teachers from diverse
communities across the nation to join the groundbreaking family learning site for a Wonder Year.

After receiving exclusive training from NCFL, the Wonder Families and Wonder Teachers will begin sharing their learning experiences
by posting to Wonderopolis each week and igniting a conversation through their posts and responses to the visitors’ comments.

Social media will also play a large role in the Wonder Year as families and teachers will promote online and offline events through
channels such as Twitter and Facebook.
