NPR Wants Potter Professors for Show

National Public Radio in the US is planning a 20th Anniversary program to celebrate all things Harry Potter. They are looking for teachers who use the Hogwarts Saga in their classrooms — not just classes devoted to the subject but anywhere in any subject at any level. Here’s the  CFP — ‘Call for Pundits’ — on their website:

It’s been a little more than 20 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was first published in the U.S. In that time, the series has become beloved by many — and sparked controversy among others, often making it onto lists of banned books.

NPR wants to hear from teachers who incorporate Harry Potter into their yearly curriculum. Whether you’re just starting out and have loved the books since you were a child or you’re a seasoned veteran who has taught about Hogwarts for years, we want to hear about the experiences you’ve had with your students.

Your responses may be used in an upcoming story, on air or on A producer may reach out to you to follow up on your response, too. Thanks for submitting our form!

The form, very short, can be found here by scrolling down. NPR does great radio and I look forward to hearing about how the Harry Potter stories are being put to use by Generation Hex teachers in primary, secondary, and college classrooms, teachers who grew up with the stories and are now charged with sharing the magic. Please do send out this CFPundits to all the teachers you know who teach with Harry Potter. I hope to listen to your story or your friends’ stories when the show is aired!
