HISTORY TEACHING FELLOW, Boston University Academy Tracking Code3371 Job Description
Boston University Academy is seeking a full-time History Teaching Fellow to begin in August 2021 for the 2021-2022 academic year. Teaching fellowships are generally one or two-year positions and offer relatively new teachers opportunities for experience, mentorship, and professional growth. Teaching fellows teach a reduced courseload. Primary responsibilities for this position include teaching one or two sections of history, likely at the ninth-grade level, and contributing to other aspects of independent school life: leading clubs and activities, chaperoning trips, and possibly coaching; applicants with a particular interest in assisting model UN are encouraged to share that in their cover letters. The fellowship also features opportunities to observe other teachers, be observed, and discuss teaching practice. The teacher will join a five-person department committed to discussion-based classes, intensive primary source work, interdisciplinary connections, and a focus on analytical writing.
The ideal candidate will have some experience working with adolescents, a degree in a related field, a student-centered approach, and deep and diverse historical interests. For all positions, we look for candidates who enjoy working with colleagues in a collaborative environment, who are flexible and creative, who will fully engage in the life of the school, and who are committed to fostering an inclusive and equitable community.
