LearnZillion is seeking talented writers to adapt short nonfiction texts and articles from the public domain for students in the third through eighth grades. For this project, you will be given 3 to 5 texts to adapt, along with adaptation instructions. The adaptation may include "leveling" an article to certain levels of reading difficulty, tying together several texts to create a single, unified article, and/or creating non-fiction text features such as sidebars, glossaries, pictures and captions to go along with the content in the article. Articles will not exceed 2,000 words.

Please submit a writing sample, preferably a nonfiction example targeting children in grades 3-8, and your quote per text adaptation.
