Working Title: LEAD TEACHER, SEP

Position Type: Hourly Wage

Department: Curry School of Education

Location: Charlottesville

Posting Date: 08-21-2017

Posting Summary:
The Saturday and Summer Enrichment Program at the Curry School of Education is looking for Lead Teachers for its programs in Charlottesville, VA. The program lasts for five consecutive Saturdays from January 20, 2018 through February 17, 2018 with February 24 as a snow date. Incumbents attend training, write curriculum, and teach classes to K-12 school age children. Course proposals can be in almost any subject, including, but not limited to:

Architecture
Biology
Chemistry
Economics
Engineering
Math
Music
Physics
Technology

A Bachelor's Degree is required, but equivalent content area or teaching experience will be considered in lieu of a degree. Experience teaching or performing the discipline or craft in the content area of the course being taught is required. Ability to relate to children from diverse backgrounds is required. Experience teaching K-12 school age children in a classroom setting is strongly preferred, or experience teaching at the university level, as is knowledge of curriculum development and classroom management.

Applicant screening begins September 06, 2017 but the position will remain open until filled.

Please thoughtfully complete all the questions for this application in their entirety. Helpful Hints for Course Proposals:

- SEP seeks classes that are not found in the "regular" education coursework. If you wish to teach a more traditional topic (culture classes, astronomy, etc.), find a twist or a new lens for engaging learners with this topic.
- Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics classes are always in high demand. Could you integrate any of these areas into your course at some point?
- SEP values active and authentic learning. Our curriculum focuses less on "content coverage" and more on depth and engaging these learners with key ideas and principles from various disciplines and fields.
- NOTE: This is only a proposal. We just want to find out about your initial ideas - full curriculum development will come later.
