How you can ‘Get the Facts Out’ about the teaching profession
Please freely use any materials on this site and add your own branding and information that is unique to your program. You may modify the materials as you see fit; however, we have engaged in extensive interviews and user-testing on all pictures and wording, including taglines and “Did you know …” statements. If these are modified, we strongly recommend that you interview your program’s students and faculty to verify that the changes improve students’ view of the profession rather than diminish it. See our attribution and usage guidelines and find additional tips on the Tested Messaging page.
