Teacher Special Programs (TSP) Pre-college Academy (PCA) Early Academic Outreach Program Center for Educational Partnerships

The Center for Educational Partnerships seeks qualified temporary non-tenure track, part-time Instructors (TSPs) for Summer to teach in the Pre-College Academy (PCA), a five-week virtual college-preparatory summer program hosted by the Early Academic Outreach Program (EAOP) at the University of California, Berkeley. EAOP partners with schools, districts, community organizations, and families to empower underserved students and prepare them for college and career success. For over 35 years, PCA has provided intensive academic enrichment for EAOP students from partner high schools throughout the Bay Area. PCA prepares students for academic success in the following school year, including excellence in classes that meet the University of California's A-G subject requirements and enrollment in Honors and Advanced Placement courses.

PCA offers students rigorous coursework, college-style expectations and an environment of challenging academic camaraderie. This year, students will commit to either a Writing or Math course (Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus). The Math courses will follow a virtual curriculum created by UC Scout. The Writing courses are theme-based, drawing on a range of academic disciplines. Examples of courses taught in the past include: Free Me Fast: The {potentially} Liberating Linguistics of Rap, In Search Of The Self Through a Critically Analytical Lens, Decolonizing the Classroom: Radical Healing and Empowering Education, Language, Culture, and Power: Mixtape of an Activist. Additionally, students attend weekly activity sessions that may include team building, leadership activities, and college advising. All classes will be virtual this summer.

Teaching Responsibilities:
We are seeking outstanding instructors (TSPs) who can teach courses in EAOP's Pre-College Academy, grades 9-11. Successful candidates will create and implement an exciting theme-based writing course geared toward high school students who have completed their 9th and 10th-grade years or facilitate two math courses created by UC Scout.

Refer to http://eaop.berkeley.edu/pre-college-academy for details on the program. Individuals who qualify to teach college writing are especially encouraged to apply. The teaching load consists of one-two sections of class, Monday through Thursday. Instructional time (synchronize and asynchronous) will take place between 9am-3:30pm with occasional morning staff meetings. Each section has approximately 25 students.

General Duties:

Instructors will work with a teaching assistant. In addition to teaching responsibilities, duties include: preparing course materials (including syllabus, course calendar, course reader, assignments, etc.), reviewing student diagnostic tests and applying results to the course design, holding office hours, submitting student progress reports and assigning grades, tutoring and advising students, attending weekly staff/instructor meetings, and supervising the work of the teaching assistant.
